ACTIVITIES.

During its two years service, about 240 were enlisted in its ranks, and received various terms of military training, many of whom went into the United States army and navy, some into the National Guard, while others removing from the city carried their enthusiasm and experience to other units.

What constitutes a body of well disciplined men have continued in the service with a full complement of officers to answer as their names were called at final muster-out roll call.

During its active service, over 100 regular company drills were held in which infantry drill was fairly well mastered and put into weekly practice.

The officers held frequent noncommissioned officers schools and the promotions were made upon proficiency and term of service.

In addition to its weekly (often twice a week) drills, Company B participated in over forty special patriotic events, sometimes with the entire battalion; but often alone, when the other companies could not respond.

These special occasions were parades, the guarding of troop trains, etc. incident to the going-away and the home-coming of soldiers, and in the many World War, Liberty loan, Red Cross drive campaigns, and Armistice and victory celebrations.

During the influenza epidemic, fall and winter of 1918-1919, Company B furnished the military escort, volley firing detail and bugler for full military honers at the funerals of numerous United States soldiers brought to Topeka for burial; and this was often at a time When the epidemic was so severe that indoor services were not held and only services at the grave permitted.

Company B furnished one major, five captains, eight lieutenants, two battalion color sergeants, three battalion supply sergeants and one battalion sergeant major for state guard service while several went from the company who obtained commissions and warrants in the United States army.

During its entire service, Company B maintained a complete and ever-ready unit of Kansas militia; and it never failed to respond to any call of duty, although it often caused much personal and business sacrifice.

While not permitted to go overseas it tried to keep "the home fires burning," and is proud of its record in having given the elementary military training to almost one hundred young men who went from its ranks into United States military service, some of whom served upon the historic battle fields of France.

Company B will always look back with satisfaction upon its humble service during the great World War, not because of what it did, but as to what it was willing to do had opportunity offered.
