This article is composed of two paragraphs and a table listing the 42 American Army divisions of W.W. I, the states from which they were pooled and the locations of their respective training camps:

The Doughboys were "trained in the division, which was our typical combat unit. In the American Army it was composed of about 1,000 officers and 27,000 men. Training and sorting organizations of about 10,000 men, known as depot brigades, were also utilized, but as far as possible, the new recruits were put almost immediately into the divisions which were the organizations in which they would go into action."
