I recently learned that many of the Americans captured at Bataan were members of the 200th Coast Artillery, New Mexico National Guard.who had been pressed into federal service.
Not to try to be funny, but you have to wonder how a Coast Artillery unit was incorporated into NM national guard. There doesn’t seem there would be much calling to bombard ships from Santa Fe.
Goes to show that native Americans were some of the first to be in the fight.
