CCC Man

Excerpted from this article in the Daily Mail, Charlston, WV

     Lyle Gaston joined the Civilian Conservation Corps. Gaston crushed limestone rock, planted trees and dug diversion ditches. He earned $30 a month and sent $25 to his family.

   "Believe it or not, I always had money," said Gaston, "But we were poor like everyone else. We done well to have enough food to eat."
