United Again

Hello Dear Reader,
Fort Huachuca was a Negro army camp and Wes Carter, Verl Croft, Don Davis, and Ren Barney built barracks. In the beginning they lived in unfinished barracks the construction company furnished for their employees. It wasn’t long until Wes and Verl were given the best jobs on the project because they were such good carpenters. They became friends with the foreman, Owen Radford, and his wife.

Wes saved his money for several weeks until he had enough to send for Mary. She drove their old car down accompanied by their half-cocker spaniel, Blackie. That must have been a scary trip for a young wife. It was 600 miles.
