The Cheyenne Leader for March 2, 1917: National Guardsmen having a good time at Ft. D. A. Russell.
After the early spat about it, Colorado Guardsmen, we learned were having a good time at Ft. D. A. Russell. Wyoming Guardsmen were about to arrive there.
Keep in mind that Wyoming Guardsmen were not allowed to muster there when they were called into service, oddly enough. The post is just outside of Cheyenne. But they were being allowed to demuster there.
And, in other news, things were looking pretty grim following the release of the Zimmerman Note, which makes a person wonder why the Federal Government was demustering troops that logic dicated they'd be calling back into service shortly.
