Abstract : This document focuses on the experiences of Jacob Cuznar in the 3rd Infantry Regiment, U.S. Army, during three enlistments beginning in 1908 and ending in 1922. Born in Slovenia (then Austria), most of Cuznar's service was in the Philippine Islands during the campaigns against the Moros. This paper provides an historical overview of Slovenian emigration to the U.S., the U.S. presence in the Philippines, the role of the U.S. Army in the Philippines against the Moros, and John J. Pershing's Philippine service. The English translation of Cuznar's diary (an appendix) describes his life in Slovenia, his emigration to and experiences in the U.S., his service in the 3rd Infantry in the U.S. and the Philippines, and his world travel. The diary covers events from 1881 to 1930.
