Military Pomp and Ceremony~ 222nd Field Artillery

Lee R. Christensen adds: Kathy: I do not recognize any of the enlisted troopers in the photo. But Joe Buys who was probably the Officer of the Day inspecting the group was well known to North Sanpete and Wasatch Academy football players. He was the coach at Richfield and I don't remember either school beating them in my day. When the Utah National Guard mobilized in March 1941 a good number of high school coachs were mobilized with it. Both Mt Pleasant schools , Brunger from Wasatch and Fuller from Noth Sanpete went into service along with Buys, Richfield and Wade ,Salina just to name four. lee
