My grandfather left the military in MX. around 1923, when he left he was a Lt. Col..
He has said he fought along with "Pancho Villa". I can not find any records of him anywhere,any info would help.Also there was as late as 1962, a portrait of him in full dress uniform displayed either in MX or TX at the border in a government building but my mother does not remember where.

My Grand-Father also served in the Mexican Army. I believe he was a Capitan. His last name was Nunez. I don't know which years he served. I do know that he fought alongside Pancho Villa. I'm looking for the Mexican Army enlistment records from the late 1800's to early 1900's. If you have any information that might help me, I hope you will share.
Thank you, and good luck in your search.

P.S. if I find any info that I think would be of use to you I'll pass it along.

My grandfather rode with Villa. He was supposed to be one of the Dorados. He also was a captain. Jose Gilberto Nunez. He was born in Valle de Zaragoza in the state of Chihuahua in the 1890s. He was the only one of his siblings to join the Revolution. Do you have any more information about your Nunez?

My Grandfather Salvador Nunez was from Spain. He was born (I believe, not 100% sure yet)in 1869, I don't know the year he came to Mexico. That's all I have on him for now. I'm wating on information on him from an aunt (his daughter). I don't know if he had siblings or if he was married or had children before he married my Grandmother. I know that when my Grandfather came to Mexico when the "foreigners" got off the ship(s) the males were imediately made Mexican citizens and enroll in the army and sent to fight. I don't know when my Grandfather rode with Villa. My Grandfather was missing his thumb nail, him and Villa had a few on them (drinks) and while playing with their guns (I don't remember the name of the game) one of Villa's bullet injured my Grandfather. I'm trying to find Mexican Army enlistment records from the late 1800's to early 1900's. P.S. I wonder if we could be related :)
