I found the application for headstone of my great grandfather and need some advice on something.
There is a handwritten note that says " also served as Corp. co C 143 Inf and Pvt. M.G. Co 16th Inf"

Any ideas what the M.G. might mean?

My grandfather was in the Machine Gun Battalion in WWI. It's abbreviated MG Bn on another part of the record.
