Description: Mr. Louis Tisinger decided to join the Texas National Guard in 1940, just as it was mobilized and one year before Pearl Harbor was bombed. As a part of the 36th Infantry Division, he was based at Camp Bowie, Texas when the U. S. was attacked. I remember the Sunday morning that it happened, he recalls. It was hard for me to believe. I was en route back to camp when I received the news, and we wondered what was going to happen. . . . We were very much alarmed. . . . Our training intensified, and we prepared to move overseas and meet the enemy.
