Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Tags: — Michael Kromeke @ 4:42 pm

Commissioned officers of Camp Cody are rapidly providing quarters for their wives, that is those that are fortunate to have them, and it is expected that the end of this month will see families of two thirds of the officers quartered here at Deming.

Mrs. Roy Norris, wife of Lieutenant Norris, 126th field artillery, was the first officer’s wife in Deming, having arrived here prior to the departure of her husband for Camp Cody. Her arrival was the signal for more to come, although lack of quarters made many of the officers hesitate to send for their families.

Several of the commissioned officers of Camp Cody have their families quartered at El Paso, it having been practically impossible to get proper living apartment in Deming at the time of their arrival.

As is the custom in practically every army post of any importance, a colony of officers’ wives will be formed and a definite form of social intercourse established. – Camp Cody, Trench and Camp Newspaper – October 16, 1917
