Additional info provided by Hugh Monahan
My grandfather was Sergeant First Class Hugh Monahan, assigned to B Company, 301st Engineers, 4th Army Corp, US Army. The same unit PFC T. C. Linskey was also assigned to.
According to the unit history of said Company titled, "B Company's Book, 301st Engineers", 147 pages. On page 12 there is a listing under Privates, First Class for Thomas C. Linskey, Kokomo, Ind.
This unit was never in Camp Shelby, Miss. The unit was formed at Camp Devons, Mass. as part of the 76th Division and sent to France.
After their arrival in France the unit was separated from the 76th Division and reassigned to the 4th Army Corp and fought in the Battle of St. Mihiel and after the armistice served in Germany as part of the Army of the Occupation.
The unit returned to Camp Devons, Mass. in 1919 were the men were discharged and the unit was disbanded. PFC Linskey was probably either assigned to the 301st engineers at Camp Devons, Mass or in France from Camp Shelby, Miss.
