I find it amazing that this photo, taken so many years ago, actually still
exists! And now, someone has put it online 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!
