Below: The divisional history book History of the Third Division United States Army, for the Period December 1, 1917 to January 1,1919 mentions 1Lt. Arch. G. Montgomery as being with the Regimental Headquarters of the 76th Field Artillery in the Marne Defense from July 15 to July 18, 1918, during the Aisne-Marne Offensive from July 19 to August 6, 1918, in the Saint Mihiel Offense from September 12, to September 16, 1918 and the Meuse-Argonne Offense from September 26 to November 11, 1918. Although the text list those wounded, gassed or killed, it seems 1Lt. Archibald came out of it without a scratch. It is also interesting to note that Captain Norman Herbert Schwarzkopf served in the 1st Battalion's Headquarters of the 76th Field Artillery. Captain Norman H. Schwarzkopf went on to make brigadier general and his son, with the same name, commanded Operation Desert Storm
