Throwback Thursday: Student Army Training Corps

We honor Nebraska Veterans with this week’s #ThrowbackThursday!

This black and white photograph shows eight members of the Student Army Training Corps. The SATC was approved by the War Department in 1917 to train young men for military service.

This photo is owned by Wayne State College. In a continuing effort to preserve and make accessible photographs depicting the history of Wayne State College and the region it serves, the Wayne State College Library is digitizing selected photographs from its archives. Photographs from the early 1900s included in Nebraska Memories show the buildings and grounds of the campus, athletic teams, the Student Army Training Corps, and other groups while slightly later images show famous visitors to campus.
