After three years in the islands, the War Department issued orders relieving Charles Summerall of command of the Hawaiian Department and ordering him to assume command of the Eighth Corps Area with headquarters at San Antonio, Texas. As he had no leave since the war, he took three months leave, and spent most of it with friends in Santa Barbara, California. Arrangements had been made to unveil the First Division Monument in Washington on October 4, 1924, the anniversary of the division's entry into the Meuse–Argonne battle. A notable event during this time was the death and funeral of Mr. Samuel Gompers, the president of the American Federation of Labor (AFL). After honoring him with a military funeral service with Charles' aid, relations between the army and the labor officials improved.
