Company strength was 98 enlisted men and three officers -- Capt. Wade Shankle, and Lieutenants Carl Wilkinson and L. B. Adams.  

Col. Harry E. Dudley, commanding officer of the 140th Infantry, Major Tanner C. Dye, supply officer, and Capt. Francis Pfeffer, adjutant, made the trip to the Arkansas camp with Company K.
