Title

Recruits at Camp Meade, MD, Starting on Practice March

Description

Located near Annapolis Junction, MD this was one of the larger cantonments on the east coast, some 400,000 volunteers and draftees passing through en route to WWI in Europe. The stark, regimented conditions facing new arrivals helps to explain the popularity of YWCA Hostess Houses located on military bases.
