Frank Borras WWI records

Hi Bennie and all:

I found 2 of my relatives' WW I Service records in the Florida Memory database.

I've included the link below. The records show that he served in Europe in the Engineer Corps. It reads " 13 Serv Co 20 Engrs" prior to that he was with the Co A 519 Engrs. What would be the name of the Colored Unit he served in?

I tried to research the above but couldn't find it.

His brother Edward J Borras like Frank began his service in the 151 Dep Brig. It lists Edward as part of the 367 which was a black unit.

See Edward's records directly below:

Can you tell me anything about the Engineers?

Thanks,

K Wyer Lane
