Subject

The 200th New Mexico 200th Coast Artillery Regiment's group training picture at Fort Bliss, Texas after the Regiment is federalized.

Description

The 200th New Mexico Coast Artillery Regiment was activated and sent to the Philippines to interact with the Filipinos. General Douglas MacArthur felt that the Regiment because of its minority background would work well with the Filipino Troops. Additionally, MacArthur surmised that the 200th Coast Artillery was expendable because of its large minority population.
