Additional Remarks

The Civilian Conservation Corps existed between 1933 and 1942.  It employed millions of unmarried men between the ages of 17 and 25 on projects in rural areas owned primarily by federal, state, and local governments. The CCC was designed to provide jobs for young men, to relieve families who had difficulty finding jobs during the Great Depression in the United States.  The men served a term of six months, but they could serve up to four terms. They earned $30 a month, $25 of which was sent home to their families.

This is a copy of a CCC Additional Remarks Form regarding my maternal grandfather.  He was appointed as a Leader one time and an Assistant Leader four times.  He was a Leader for Mosquito Control, Road Construction, and Forestry Labor.  He was an Assistant Leader for Mosquito Control three times and once for Forestry Labor.

He was hospitalized once for two days, 17 March to 19 March 1937.  He would have been doing Mosquito control in Lewes, Delaware.

My grandfather had four absences, one without permission.  For that one he was admonished, but no hearing was held.

It is again noted that he had an eighth grade education and that he had been employed as a grocery clerk.

While in the CCC my grandfather did Mosquito Control, Road Construction with a pick and shovel, and Forestry Labor with an ax.  He also attended Life Saving School and spent some time traveling.

It is noted that my grandfather was a reliable and willing worker.
