Question on Company C, 17 Tank Battalion

I am new to this forum and would like to begin research into a relatiive's military service.  Starting out, all I have is the information from his 'veteran's tombstone' and no living relatives to substantiate it.  Here is what I found on the tombstone:

        Nick Ricupero


        PVT, Co C 17 Tank Bn

        World War I

My initial search for the 17 Tank Battalion did not turn up that unit number until the 301st was redesignated as the 17th perhaps in the early 1920's.  So  it doesn't appear that the 17th would have been in action in WW I.  Or, could there be some bad information on the tombstone?  Of course he could have been in a different unit in WW I, if at all.

Any unit rosters out there with this gentleman's name on them?

I will make a request to the military records folks to determine if his service record still exists, but are there other avenues that I should be researching?


Any other assistance is appreciated.
