On This Day: Army pulls RR guard from Strasburg

The Army recalled First Lt. Robert E. Mulgannon from his appointed guard position. He was stationed at the Strasburg Rail Road, guarding the four mile track. Mulgannon was to return to New Cumberland Army Reception Center, reported the Intelligencer Journal On This Day in 1944.

 
On This Day is a prompt I started this month to further explore historical events. I will make every effort to keep events localized to that of my research or research I am conducting for others. However, from time to time, it will simply be a subject that captured my attention.
Some posts will be brief while others may be more detailed.
