Three such groups are particularly well-represented: the Old Company G Veterans Association, the American Legion, and La Societe des Quarante Hommes et Huit Chevaux (40 et 8). The materials involving these groups do not often relate directly to Lynaugh, but they reflect his interest and membership in the groups by the fact that he collected them. Company G was composed of veterans from the Madison area who fought in the 127th Infantry Regiment, part of the 32nd Division. Its materials include membership and financial records as well as correspondence. Of particular interest is a postcard, sent by Lynaugh while training at Camp MacArthur (Waco, Texas) in 1917, that is in the shape of an artillery shell. Papers from the national, state, and local levels of the American Legion and 40 et 8 are in the collection.

Other materials in the collection relate to Lynaugh's World War II homefront activities and include Civil Defense schedules from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, political fliers from the 1940 presidential election, and programs for Memorial Day celebrations in Madison. Photographs in this collection are almost entirely unidentified and include shots of an American Legion parade and various pictures of soldiers and dead bodies from World War I.
