The picture was taken at Las Balmas, near Brownsville, Tex., Jan. 26, 1917, shortly before the regiment returned to Iowa. In the row of officers in the foreground are Lt. Hanford MacNider, Capt. J. M. Heffner, Capt. Ory W. Garman and Lt. Con Helbig.

    The picture is the property of W. H. Paxton, a member of D Company.

    Shortly after returning to Mason City in March, 1917, the two local companies were mustered into service for World War I.
