Col. Cullen Praises High Spirit at Camp Cody

Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Tags: — Michael Kromeke @ 7:45 pm

Col. Dorsey Cullen, commander of the banqueting soldiers, spoke in eloquent term of the esprit de corps of those in his command and gave the men an excellent “bill of character.”

“Your record is on file in Washington,” said the colonel, “and when it is marked ‘excellent’ it is a good entrance into any position in civil life. In fact, I have been told by several large corporation that army soldier in my command who presented such a record, was sure of getting employment.”

Lieut. Dickinson, military police commander, presided as master of ceremonies.

“Stunts” and entertainment by Teal’s “U. S. Border Girls” lasted until nearly midnight. There was a fast boxing match and a good wrestling card. Music was furnished by the Red Cross orchestra and a jazz piano player from the base hospital. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Friday, December 6, 1918
