The first “Croix de guerre” man to arrive at Camp Cody in Deming, New Mexico is Major Wm. T. Cook, commanding field battalion 62. This distinguished honor was conferred upon Major Cook for conspicuous gallantry in action during the operations connected with the capture and defense of Catigny. May 27 to 31, Major Cook is strong for the work of the welfare organizations which back up the fighting lines “over there.” “I don’t know what the boys in trenches would do without them” said Major Crook.
