Civilian Conservation Corps
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.
Franklin D. Roosevelt March 21, 1933

In 1933, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt envisioned the (CCC) as a way to recruit thousands of unemployed young men, enroll them in a peacetime army, and send them into battle against destruction and erosion of our natural resources.
The Departments of War, Labor, Interior, and Agriculture made this massive mobilization of manpower a reality on April 17, 1933. About three million unemployed and unmarried men between the ages of 18 and 24 were enrolled in the Civilian Conservation Corps. Thousands of men were transported from eastern cities westward. Natural resource agencies, such as the U.S.D.A. Forest Service, moved their management activities 20-30 years ahead. Until the demise of the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1942, millions of men worked tirelessly on a myriad of natural resource projects.

During the nine years of the Civilian Conservation Corps:
* 89,000 miles of telephone line was installed * 126,000 miles of roads and trails were constructed * 6,459,000 man-days were expended fighting fires * 6,660,000 erosion control check dams were built * 2,356,000,000 trees were planted

As the country moved into World War II, the CCC was directly involved in assisting the Armed Forces with manpower and supplies. The CCC had in its ranks thousands of men, toughened by rigorous outside work, who were used to the strict discipline of the military. It is widely accepted that one important outcome of the Civilian Conservation Corps was the ability of the United States to win World War II.
