    10. [S17] 222nd Field Artillery, Utah Army National Guard, ([Available online]) (Reliability: 3).
      Utah Army National Guard history states that its 222d Field Artillery Battalion was the original unit, and that this unit was drafted for service in World War I from August 1917 through January 1919. The unit was redesignated as the 145th Field Artillery and assigned to the 40th Division stationed at Bordeaux, France. During World War I the unit received two streamers (streamer without inscription, and streamer embroidered) and a decoration (Philippine Presidential Unit Citation).

    11. [S13] Global Security, ([Online]) (Reliability: 3).
      Immediately after their Mexican border duty, the Utah units were reorganized into the 145th Field Artillery Regiment and became a part of the 40th Division which included Utah, Nevada, and California units. On 17 October 1917 the 145th Field Artillery of Utah was inducted into federal service. They were sent to Camp Kearney, California where they remained for about a year in training. While in California 369 men were taken out of the regiment and sent as replacements in American front line units in Europe. There were several casualties among this group. In August 1917 the 145th started its move to Europe and ended up at Camp De Souge near Bordeaux, France. They trained for front line duty and were making preparations to move to the front when the Armistice ended the war.
