“May Day” One of Great Importance to Officers and Men of Camp Cody

Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Tags: — Michael Kromeke @ 3:15 pm

The arrival of May Day means more than a mere day in a month to Camp Cody. Why?

Well, you see this is the day the officers and enlisted men have the official permission to place moth balls in their woolen clothing and to resurrect the cotton uniforms more suited to warm weather. Officers and men will appreciate this to the full, as during some of the recent hot days, the woolen o. d.’s have been oppressively hot to their wearers.

There has been a rush among the tailors in Deming, outfitting officers who either had no cotton o. d. uniforms or whose old ones were not presentable in the view of their owners. The ready made type also has been somewhat in demand among the officers. The men will wear the regular issue obtained from the camp quartermaster. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – Wednesday, May 1, 1918
