Sinopsis: From 1921 to 1940, young men from all over the nation and Puerto Rico zealously joined in month-long summer camps run by the U,S, Army. At the 50 or so camps held each year these volunteer summertime soldiers experienced the challenges and satisfactions of military training. Many drew on soldiering skills learned at Citizen Military Training Camps in service with America's fighting forces in World War II. Two future U.S. presidents took part; a future literary giant was inspired to write his first poem while training; and three of the country's most esteemed military leaders played major roles. To CMTC veterans the title of this book, the first comprehensive history of a youth program that deserves to be recalled, may seem a misnomer: for them those summers have never been forgotten.
