 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Junction City special: First Sergeant George Loyd, I troop, Seventh cavalry, one of the oldest soldiers at the post, committed suicide by shooting himself through the head.  Death was almost instantaneous.  Sergeant  Loyd has seen hard service and has been wounded a number of times.  At the battle of Wounded Knee he was shot through the body and was left for dead.  Since then he has had two ribs broken and it is thought he was deranged when he committed his last rash act.
