During the Mexican Expedition, 140,000 regular army and National Guard servicemen, including the 2nd Indiana Infantry Regiment and the Indiana National Guard, patrolled the border between Mexico and the United States to discourage further raids. Meanwhile, the expeditionary force of 14,000 operated in northern Mexico for 11 months but failed to capture of Villa. The Punitive Expedition, as it was then called, ended in February 1917. Two months later, the United States entered World War I with Pershing at the head of its armed forces.
