S. needed men who had experience with horses, motors, and mathematics, he entered the U.S. Army on Oct 29, 1918 and was assigned to the 9th Observation Battery, preliminary to entering the field artillery officers training school at Camp Zachary Taylor, Louisville, KY. The armistice was signed 13 days later, and he was discharged on Dec 5, 1918.
