any company produce 15mm US infantry figures in the campaign hats? I would like to do the Pershing Mexican Punishment Expedition of 1916.

Minifigs does a marching pose, and some action poses in a side cap.

As 79thPA says only Minifigs do them and in a marching pose

Peter Pig do a set of heads wearing a Montana hat and

I've done a few head swaps with various bodies from their other ranges – Spanish Civil War range, Wild West US cavalry and WW1 British Cavalry

However you still have to do a proxy paint job

There's nothing purpose-designed for this campaign in 15mm (maybe Blue Moon might like to consider it for a future release). In 20mm though, there's plenty of choice: in addition to Shellhole Scenics, EWM also has a range.

I have considered using QRF/TSS 15mm Spanish-American War range for Americans. The headgear would require a bit of greenstuff

The QRF SAW Americans would make passable Carranzistas. From 1913 on the Constitutionalists were supplied with large quantities of US cast-off SAW-era khaki uniforms, and although by 1916 a new locally-produced uniform (actually very similar to the old Federal uniform) was being issued to those former-Constitutionalist troops who'd become the Carranzista army, given the chaos caused by the ongoing internal conflict there were probably many units still in the cast-offs. The Constitutionalists tended to wear the full uniform including jacket, which is how the QRF figures are depicted.
