  1. Wondering how many of those missionaries went directly from a mission to military service, I chose a random few with distinctive names.

    Marvin J. Fjelsted served in the Eastern States mission and then joined the army.

    David C. Triplett served in the Northern States Mission, but his obituary doesn’t mention military service.

    H. Robert Brummett served in the Eastern States Mission and then in the Army.

  2. Yeah! More pictures!

  3. In the Detroit picture, Ted Tuttle was none other then the later Elder A. Theodore Tuttle of the First Quorum of the Seventy. He got the flag that was raised in Iwo Jima in WW2. What is more where the heck is Mammoth, Utah?

  4. Most of the women in Nipton must have gathered for that photo.

  5. I recognized a few names in that mission home picture as well:

    Dale L. Gardner, later my stake president and Athletic Director at Weber State College.

    Norman Parr, my bishop when I was in primary, and with whom my Dad served as a counselor. I believe he also served in the army.

  6. Harold Dowdle was in my ward from the late 60s onward. Like some, probably most of the others shown here, he joined the military service after completing his mission to Argentina. He died last winter, and his obituary is probably typical of a lot of the men in that photograph.

  7. Mammoth, Utah, is a mining town in Juab County, just a few miles from Eureka. There’s not much left of it, but then Eureka always made me think that “I found it!! –but not here.”

  9. I would like to contact Raymond Shallbetter (shown in the 1941 MTC photo), I’m sure he’s long gone home, but would love to hear from his son, if possible. We were in the Garden Grove, CA ward years ago. I found a piece Ray wrote years ago and would love to share. It has helped me after the loss of my wife two months ago. I WAS TOM CARDEN at the time. Wife WAS Shirley. There was a young Ray Shallbetter I seem to recall.????
