HAITI. The First Marine Brigade, serving in Haiti, continues at an authorized strength of 31 commissioned officers, eight warrant officers, and 635 enlisted men. There appears to be no prospect in the immediate future of a change in this strength.

In addition to the officers and enlisted men serving in the First Brigade there are in Haiti serving with the Garde d'Haiti 30 commissioned officers, 3 warrant officers and 75 enlisted men. This force will be reduced gradually by the Haitianization of the Garde now in progress.
