CCC Enrolled Here Help

Twenty men of the 1320th Company, CCC left Bond Camp, Westernport, Tuesday at 10:00 a. m., for Memorial Hospital, Cumberland, for the purpose of blood transfusions for James Cunningham, a member of the 2366th Company, CCC, Westernport, who was suffering from blood poisoning.

After forcing through slides along the nine mile trail from the camp to Westernport, the men arrived in Cumberland just a few minutes before the city was isolated by flood waters, only to find that Cunningham had died at noon.

It was impossible for the men to return to their camp as they were marooned in Cumberland. Accommodations were made for them at the State Armory where they stayed during the night. Several of the enrollees assisted the National Guard in its rescue work throughout the evening.
