"I propose to create a Civilian Conservation Corps to be used in simple work, not interfering with normal employment, and confining itself to forestry, the prevention of soil erosion, flood control, and similar projects."

"The slogan of the Civilian Conservation Corps is 'We can take it!' Building strong bodies is a major CCC objective.

By Wilfred J. Mead, Civilian Conservation Corps
