China Relief Expedition[edit]

What connection does the modern day regiment have with the regiment referenced in the following U.S. Navy documentation 1.

"The conditions in China having become such as to require the presence there of American troops to protect the lives and property of Americans, 6 officers and 101 enlisted men were, on June 14, 1900, detached from the First Regiment of Marines at the naval station, Cavite, P.I., and sent on board the U.S.S. Newark for transportation to Taku, China. This detachment arrived off Taku on June 18, and was joined by a small detachment of 2 officers and 30 enlisted men sent forward from Cavite in the U.S.S. Nashville. The officers of these detachments were as follows: Maj. L.W.T. Waller, commanding; First Lieuts. S.D. Butler, Henry Leonard, George C. Reid, R.F. Wynne, W.G. Powell, A.E.Harding, and Second Lieut. Wade L. Jolly.". Emphasis is on mine and souce is taken directly from the link previously provided.

If there is a direct connection I would like to added a wikilink of this regiment's article to the wikiartilce China Relief Expedition. --RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 23:43, 18 September 2009 (UTC)[reply]

Additionally there appears to be several 1st Marine Regiments per this document, produced in 1967, and presently hosted by the United States Air Force's Air University. Should these units be mentioned?--RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 06:32, 19 October 2012 (UTC)[reply]
