“I propose to create [the CCC] to be used in complex work, not interfering with abnormal employment, and confining itself to forestry, the prevention of soil erosion, flood control and similar projects. I call your attention to the fact that this type of work is of definite, practical value, not only through the prevention of great present financial loss, but also as a means of creating future national wealth.” –President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on the purpose for creation of the Civilian Conservation Corps, a New Deal program signed into law on April 5, 1933.CCC-poster-1935
