History of Camp MacArthur During WWI


Were any of your ancestors at Camp MacArthur?

I learned a few years ago that two of my Great-Uncles, Theodore Rettammel and my paternal grandmother’s faternal twin brother, William Wendland both served with Company D, 128th Infantry, WI 32nd Division. They were part of Wisconsin National Guard unit out of Mauston, WI.

In a history of Waco, Texas, I discovered that a history of the Camp MacArthur they both were trained at before going overseas in 1918 was written by Amanda Sawyer.
