Camp Cody Commander and Wife To Visit Sons About First of New Year

Brigadier General James R. Lindsay and Mrs. Lindsay hope to be with their two sons at West Point shortly after January 1, when the 97th division is a thing of the past.

General Lindsay has recommended that the salvaging of camp be done by civilians, instead of soldiers.

“The soldiers enlisted to fight not to do carpenter work,” said the general.

The old 62nd infantry at Camp Fremont was formerly commanded by Colonel Lindsay, now commanding general of the 97th division.

Out of their combined company profits the regiment bought $12,000 of Liberty bonds, the profits from their post exchange being upwards of $9,000 and their regimental exchange $6,000. As the regiment belongs to the regular army, the bonds will be held indefinitely.

The officers of the old 62nd have expressed a desire to be demoted if can again serve under General Lindsay. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Thursday, Dec 19, 1918
