Memorandum for General Ulio (Morale Branch)

April 14, 1941 [Washington, D.C.]

The urgent need for CCC Companies in administrative capacities on all posts, Camps and stations is evident. Your views as to the manner in which this can best be arranged are desired. Timely action is absolutely essential. Too many soldiers are being used on non-military activities at these places when such work could better be performed by the CCC.

The CCC can be a great factor in expediting our Army program and in assisting us to meet conditions that adversely effect morale. There is little time for studies. Can anything be done?1
