Re: AA's in Civilian Conservation Corps
In Response To: AA's in Civilian Conservation Corps ()
The Emergency Conservation Work Act establishing the Civilian Conservation Corps was signed into law by President Roosevelt on March 31, 1933. Under the direction of Robert Fechner, the CCC employed young men between the ages of 17 and 23 in work camps where they were assigned to various conservation projects. Enrollees were paid thirty dollars a month, twenty-five dollars of which was sent home to the enrollee's families.
Many thanx Vicky for the refreshing info on the CCC
