The Student Army Training Corps was designed to give young men an opportunity to get an education and serve their country at the same time by military training. Units were established in colleges of any size all over the United States. Section A, Student Army Training Corps (S.A.T.C.), at the State University in Missoula, Montana, was established on October 1, 1918 and ended on December 18, 1918.
