The service record for my grandfather tells me much I already knew from just having known him. He was a good worker and a great cook! Granddaddy returned to his family in Sanford, NC. Two years later he married Cecile White of Surry County, NC.
Granddaddy (Lester Howard) was discharged from the Civilian Conservation Corps in June 1937. I love how the Certificate of Discharge gives a description of his. Brown Hair. Brown eyes. Ruddy Complexion. (Just what is a ruddy complexion?!) Five feet, 6 1/2 inches.
