A Cook Car and a Bunk Car
Cooks were essential to Grass Valley Camp in 1918. They worked in one car and slept in the other.
These cooks attached to the Army Air Corps at Aberdeen, Washington in 1918, grew old and died. Only one World War I American soldier now survives. Bill Fecht's note on back of this picture says, "Camp Cook Defends His Cooking." Pictures such as these show that those who lived generations ago had the same need to make light of their work as their descendants.
Bill Fecht wisely made good friends among the camp's cooks.
