Quote from AZMEMORY:
General Douglas MacArthur stated about the Bushmasters: “No greater fighting combat team has ever deployed for battle.”
After being relieved by divisions in campaign after campaign across the Pacific, the 158th Infantry was selected to spearhead the final invasion of Japan. The Bushmasters were under orders to proceed two days ahead of America’s crushing D-Day, to silence Japanese air warning stations south of Kyushu. Timely capitulation of Japan saved the 158th Infantry from what many believed would have been a certain suicide mission. On 13 October 1945, the 158th Infantry landed in Yokohama, Japan. The great odyssey was over. FROM ARIZONA TO JAPAN – IN FIVE YEARS! Members were then shipped home and the 158th was deactivated at Utsunomiya, Japan on the 17th of January 1946.

Since the late 19th century, this area of Pinal County, including Globe, Ray, Kerney, Mamouth, and Oracle have produced tons of pure copper for the electrification and electronic age of the United States. Mines in this area, with the exception perhaps of Oracle, still produce today.
At our old town hall there are exhibits of yesteryear and the mining industry. For your pleasure, here are some photos of what the mining of copper is all about.
