Iowa National Guard Activities

Fort Snelling R. O. T. C.


      Throughout the country there were established training camps for men who wished to become Reserve Officers. This course covered three months and constituted an intensive training for men to become officers in all branches of military work and to be commissioned in the Regular Army, the National Army, and the National Guard Army. These men were partly selected from the National Guard and were chosen by the Adjutant General on the recommendation of the company commanders of different units. The following men were selected from the Iowa National Guard and were sent to Fort Snelling, Minnesota. The order for their release from the National Guard was dated May 15, 1917 and they were either discharged to accept commission or returned to their former organizations by August 15, 1917.
