Last Known Activity
Sergeant Delbert Gregory enlisted in Troop H, 2nd Cavalry Regiment at St. Paul Minnesota. When the regiment arrived in Mobile but, there were only enough transports for the first 5 troops to sail to Cuba. The remainder of the 2nd moved to Tampa and gave up equipment to the "Rough Riders". The entire regiment including Troop H arrived later for occupation and pacification duties. At the time of his discharge on 23 April 1900 Sergeant Gregory was at Santa Clara Barracks.

Returning to the US after discharge he made his way to New York City and in May of he re-enlisted.

On his second enlistment Sergeant Gregory was sent to the Philippines where he was assigned to Company D, 21st Infantry regiment. By June the regiment was in defensive positions at the southern approaches to Manila, fighting off attacks from the opposing forces. By November 1900 the insurgents had resorted to guerrilla attacks and it was one of these attacks that took the life of Sergeant Gregory on 3 July of 1901.

Delbert Gregory's final resting place is at the Presbyterian Cemetery in Pickaway County Ohio.
