Note with photo:  Location was atop Cuny Table along South Dakotas Badland wall.  28 miles frrom Wall,SD and 58 miles east of the Black Hills.  We got used to it but it took some time after they moved the camp from the beautiful Black Hill in 1939.  Then, quite suddenly like the blink of an eye those South Dakota badlands played a tune on your heartstrings.  Hard to explain; and years later looking at a photo of those CCC Boys with the Badlands in the background ...just about makes a man choke down.  I left there with 12 CCC Boys who volunteered a year before Pearl Harbor.  A couple of years before D-Day our unit of Combat Engineers trained in Norther Ireland for a long trek in North Africa and up through Italy.
