Photo of Barr from above poster.

Photo taken ca. 1897-1900, showing Barr as a member
of Company H 22nd Infantry with his Krag rifle,
five button campaign coat (worn 1875-1902)
and model 1895 forage cap.

Leroy D. Barr enlisted in the Army on October 18, 1897
and was assigned from the Recruit Depot to
Company H 22nd Infantry on October 21, 1897 at
Fort Crook, Nebraska.

A further entry for him was found in the
Returns of the 22nd Infantry for the month
of December 1898 indicating that Barr had
been on furlough from Company H to the
city of Cleveland, Ohio from September 11
to December 11, 1898.

Barr served with the 22nd Infantry in Cuba during the
War With Spain and in the Philippines during the
Philippine Insurrection.

Enlargement of section of above wanted poster, giving description of Barr. A prominent identifying characteristic
of Barr is noted as his tatoo for Company H 22nd Infantry on his right forearm. The 22nd Infantry is incorrectly
described as a "Volunteer" regiment. Barr was not in the Army at the time of the incident described in the poster.
He was discharged from the 22nd Infantry on October 17, 1900 with the rank of Quartermaster Sergeant and a
character reference of Excellent. A city directory shows he was living in Cleveland, Ohio in 1904 working in the
occupation of "agent." The difficulties which existed to cause the issue of this poster must have been resolved, as
less than a year later on May 19, 1905 Barr enlisted in the Army in the 27th Infantry and rose to 1st Sergeant and
then Battalion Sergeant Major. He became Post Quartermaster Sergeant at Fort Totten and was commissioned a
Captain in the Quartermaster Corps during World War I, eventually retiring as a Captain in 1932.
