ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH

Taken August 21st, 1922, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, United States 
(Library of Congress)

"Regular Army men called us summer soldiers, or Boy Scouts, or 30-day wonders. We grinned because we were having the time of our lives. Citizens’ Military Training Camp ran for a month every summer. We were allowed a nickel a mile travel expenses to get to and from camp. The government clothed and fed us, gave us a bed and what medical attention we needed. We marched, hiked, drilled and learned to fire a Springfield ’03 rifle in summer heat so fierce that husky men and boys keeled over from sunstroke. We weren’t paid a dime for learning to soldier, yet the comparatively few chosen from the many who applied for CMTC every year were considered the luckiest boys in town. The camps were set up to train and condition young men, as a sort of citizens’ army, in 1915 Applicants could be no younger than 17, had to have a good general intelligence and moral character."

James W. Mitchell, Baltimore Sun, October 17th, 1971
