National Guard, 1950, Saranac Lake

May 27, 2013
Adirondack Daily Enterprise
Robert Ohmann of Saranac Lake suggested that the Enterprise publish this photo in honor of Memorial Day, showing the 3rd Battallion, 105th Infantry, 27th Infantry Division of the New York National Guard posing in 1950 outside the old Saranac Lake armory. This was around the time of the start of the Korean War, for which Ohmann said the Saranac Lake group was given a 90-day notice to mobilize — but the war ended before that time period was up. Ohmann remembered most of the men’s names, although not always first names: (back, fourth row) Jimmy Lewis, Alex Aubin, Charles Sayles, Harry LaBrake, Johnson, Carlton LeBeau, Cronin, Francis Darr, George Potter, Jim Lamy, Carl Hathaway, unknown, Suzanne, Al Humbereger Jr., George Schaefer, Kingston, Branch; (third row) Leroy Gonyea, Robert Ohmann, Branch, Ken Bailey, Merritt, Mike Peer (holding guidon standard), LeBeau, Joe Ratelle, Linus Fobare, Potter, unknown, Al Humberger Sr.; (second row) unknown, Kingston, unknown, unknown, Kennedy, Lyle Darr, Richter, unknown, unknown, Morello, Mose, Kingston; (front row) Harold Stacey, unknown, unknown, Tommy Fina, unknown, Andy Fortune, unknown, unknown, unknown, unknown, Pierre Suzanne and Francis Kilroy.
