This picture was sent to me by my friend Jerry Siebert with the following comments:
I find it amazing that this photo, taken so many years ago, actually still
exists! And now, someone has put it on-line for all of us to see. This
INCREDIBLE picture was taken in 1918.
It is 18,000 men preparing for war in a training camp at Camp Dodge , in
Iowa . EIGHTEEN THOUSAND MEN!!!!!
What a priceless gift from our grandfathers!
It is possible that my Grandfather, Ray Channon is in this picture. He was stationed at Camp Dodge around this time.
