Conceptually, AEF divisions should have been fairly equal since they were composed of an equal number of men and allocated (not necessarily issued) the same amount of equipment. In World War I, all divisions looked similar on paper-there were not different unit specialties that are commonly seen in today’s air assault, airborne, or armored divisions. Instead, the only distinctions were made between Regular Army, National Army and National Guard Divisions, with the former including regular, more experienced career Soldiers.
The doctrine for unit training was evolving, but it is not clear that the training the 91st division executed in the United States ever did. Although the October 1918 regulation was published by the War Department after the 91st had already fought in the Meuse-Argonne, the change in mindset had been addressed in other ways. Greene and his staff went to Europe to view the front and meet Pershing in late 1917, but there did not appear to be any major shift in training when he returned. Training schedules within the division closely mirrored the guidance outlined in the initial 1917 Infantry Training manual.
