Trainland’s owner recounts his time in The Old Guard
Colfax’s Red Atwood was a member of the famous Old Guard, the Third U.S. Infantry Regiment, tasked with conducting memorial affairs to honor fallen comrades as well as ceremonies and special events to represent the United States Army.
Red had enlisted in the Army Reserves in 1953, while the Korean War was still on, and he was informed he could be called up for the draft at any time.
By 1955, Red and his friend Joe Morgan were tired of waiting with the draft hanging over their heads, so they went to Newton to volunteer.
