2000 Men Left In Camp Cody; 50 Going Daily

Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Michael Kromeke @ 3:35 pm

The demonstration at Camp Cody, Deming, New Mexico, which has been going on for two weeks, has reduced the number of troops there on Friday to 2000 according to information from Deming. The only units now remaining are the hospital corps, military police and the quartermaster department, all of which are necessary as long as convalescents remain.

The number of men to be released in the future will be released in the future will be 50 each day, instead of 500, thereby allowing the railroad company to meet the movement without the adding of extra cars to the regular trains. Most of the buildings that were erected at the camp have been razed. – El Paso Herald Newspaper  – Friday, December 20, 1918
