On 19 Aug, he rejoined his Troop at Camp Wikoff, Montauk Point,
Long Island, New York. Camp Wikoff was a quarantine camp. He later joined Company E of the 34th US Volunteer Infantry. In Oct 1899, the 34th Volunteers arrived in the Philippines to relieve the occupation forces

Surprisingly, at 64 years old Otis registered for the WWII draft.
