I find it amazing that this photo, taken so many years ago, actually still exists! And now, I put it in my blog 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!
