The men are, left to right, back row: Claussen, Capt. Cletus O’Byrne, Bob Hoffman, Lyle Swenson, Tom Jonasen and A.C. “Bus” Krimball. Front row, left to right: Capt. Clarence Hendrix, Jim Miller, Claude Thompson, Frank Durst and Capt. George Kraft. Swenson and Durst are the only members still living. (Photo courtesy of the Mitchell Area Historical Society)
