    1. I was so impressed, I wondered why we didn’t restart the CCC like after WW11 and have our reserves stay in the service and working. Working may help with PTSD and the fast immersion back into “normal” life. My gramps worked on reserve for the CCC planting trees to help prevent another Dust Bowl. Have you read about the Dust Bowl years? I have a book, one of the few gramps said was an accurate assessment of the times. It is horrifying. How anyone survived, how our country survived?

      1. I remember learning about dust bowl and the CCC in school and imagined I would like to be part of the CCC.. Your gramps did important work. What a legacy! I’m so glad you have these memories and knowledge.
