ACTIVITIES.

This company performed no active service, neither did it participate in any war activities. Liberty loan, and Red Cross drives as a company; many of the men took part personally. We furnished seven details, such as firing squads for funerals and funeral escorts; drilled once a week and many times twice a week from May until the Armistice was signed, then attendance was poor as the influenza was raging and many were afraid to come out to drill.

The organization was ready at all times to assist wherever needed, but the opportunity never presented itself.
