Civilian Conservation Corps, South Dakota, CCC, Black Hills, history Civilian Conservation Corps: Melvin Hermanson and the camp mascot

Melvin Hermanson and the camp mascot

Camp mascots came in all types and sizes though a woodchuck was somewhat unusual.

Mel served at Mystic, F-1 during part of his six years in the Cs. Because he was a mess steward and in food service, he was exempt from the standard six month hitch rule.
