The National Park Service Act was signed on August 25, 1916. About one month later on September 30th, twenty-three soldiers were discharged from the army to be hired by the civilian agency as the first rangers in Yellowstone. Included with the soldiers were some of the one-time civilian scouts who had led the soldiers in patrolling the backcountry for poachers. These first rangers, like modern rangers, took pride in the ability to "do it all" including fighting wildfires, investigating accidents, controlling traffic, providing park visitors with information and patrolling the backcountry.
