May 30, 1918. Battalion acted as escort for selected service men from the city building to the depot, and escorted succeeding detachments as they departed for the cantonments.

Company A furnished escorts and firing squads for twenty-one deceased soldiers.

This battalion furnished escort for General Wood on his visit to Wichita in aid of the Red Cross drive in May, 1918. A company's captain acted as personal aid.

Company A furnished working party to assist in getting the influenza hospital ready for handling patients. This work required ten days to complete.

The members of this company were ever faithful and ever ready to assist in all war work, and I can say that every officer and man gave his best service until either called to the colors or enlisted in the Kansas National Guard. I am positive that the men of this organization who entered the United States service were better qualified on account of the training received with the state guard.
