California Militia and National Guard Unit Histories
Woodland Home Guard
(6th Company, California Home Guard)
The following article was copied from the December 22, 1917 issue of California Home Guard News

This company is very fortunate to have as their Commanding Officer, Major W. H. Curson, retired, N. G. C. For over twenty two years he has served in the National Guard, Volunteers and in military work, so that he well understands the needs of such an organization. He is well assisted by Lieutenants Fox and Rawson, and First Sergeant Hiddleson, all men of experience.

Drills are held weekly in the Woodland Armory, with a large turn out. Davis and Dixon, nearby companies, also fall in with the Woodland company, and this creates a great deal of enthusiasm.
Arrangements have been completed for arms and uniforms, and the company will soon be ready for any duty.What we need and want is the proper support from our State officials
