Provo 024-1-
Provo is a city in and the county seat of Utah County, Utah, located about 45 miles south of Salt Lake City along the Wasatch Front. It lies between the cities of Orem to the north and Springville to the south. It is the home of Brigham Young University, operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (sometimes called the Mormon or LDS Church). The LDS Church's largest Missionary Training Center is located in Provo.

Provo was originally called Fort Utah when it was settled in 1849 by 33 Mormon families from Salt Lake City, but was re-named Provo in 1850 for Étienne Provost, a French-Canadian trapper who arrived in the region in 1825.

Provo in Southern VictoryEdit

During the Second Great War, the Mormons rose in revolt once more. A key defensive position against the U.S. Army proved to be Provo. The Americans hit a stone wall, being forced to fight street by street into the center of town under constant attacks by Mormon soldiers and civilian insurgents. The fighting raged well into the winter and spring of 1942, when the USA finally cleared the city of remaining insurgents.

During the fighting for Provo, Armstrong Grimes was promoted to Corporal and took over the squad from Rex Stowe who was promoted to Sergeant.
