WWI Student Army Training Corp Infantry Drill Regulations Manual!
America's entry into World War I required the mobilization of bright able bodied young men to fill posistions in the military. This pulled many young men from pursuing college studies to put them into training and ultimately the War. The Student Army Training Corps (S.A.T.C.) was formed to enable young men to continue a college education with the colleges contributing to the recruitment of these military leaders. Male students had to be high school graduates and physically fit to enroll. They spent 13 hours per week learning military drill and tactics and 3 hours a week learning about war aims!
This is manual belonged to John Edmond Butz who joined the Student Army Training Corps at Theil College in Greenville, Pa. (see out complete listings to view more memorabilia from him)!
