Aside from the Kościuszko Squadron, where there any other American volunteers serving with Polish forces during the Polish-Soviet War? If so, I would like to learn any details available.

Yes, but they were Americans of Polish descent.

Close to 30,000 people were trained in military camps located on the border between the United States and Canada, including officers and soldiers recruited from local Polish communities who eventually served in General Józef Haller's Blue Army. The regiments formed in America arrived in Poland in full uniform, armed and well-trained in accordance with U.S. Army regulations.

A random site whose exact address I don`t remember now - it is really not so important - just google Blue Army and you will get hundreds options.

Well, it is important to me if I want to learn about the topic, I thought maybe it was from a book or article that I could look up. I know the Blue Army, but I didn't know it included Polish-Americans who went on to fight in the Polish-Soviet War.

Copy the first sentence from my quote in italic and google will find the article for you. Simple.

but I didn't know it included Polish-Americans

So, with this info, you can do further research on your own.
