Biography of David Hassler
CCCman, Company 1472, Camp S-66, Picket State Park, Picket State Forest, Henryville, Tennesee
I was a member of Company 1472 Civilian Conservation Corps stationed at what is now Pickett State Park in Pickett County, Tennessee during the thirties. We built Pickett State Park and developed Pickett State Forest.
All parks in Tennessee that were built by the CCC has a memorial in granite dedicated to the CCC men who built it.
I am a member of the National Association of CCC Alumni at St. Louis, MO. Our company along with Company 447 who were stationed nearby and helped build the park, hold a reunion each year at the park on the Sunday before labor day. The NACCCA hold a reunion each year at different times and places somewhere in the USA.
