Commanders of the Hawaiian Division and Hawaiian Department. I believe the Hawaiian Division commander is Major General Halsted Dorsey (based on the Distinguished Service Cross) and the Hawaiian Department Commander is Major General Hugh Drum. If so, this would date the picture to 1935.

45h Infantry Division swastika SSI.

 

"A member of the American National Guard, 1939. A member of the 45th Division of the National Guard removes the swastika from his uniform. The division, made up of members of the Federal States of Oklahoma, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona, took over the swastika as a symbol of happiness from the Indians, but now abandoned it because of its use by the National Socialists in Germany.

 

Date taken: 4 April 1939"
