Voiced by Amazon Polly

Chas. Lammers, Branch Chairman of the Military Training Camp Association, has received an announcement to the effect that authorization has been made for a citizen’ training camp in the Officer’s Training area at Zachary Taylor cantonment near Louisville, Ky.

The opportunity is given to citizens without further obligation for service, to attend this civilian training camp under authority of the War department.

Beginning January 6th and continuing two weeks, until January 18, 1919, an opportunity is given to the men in the smaller cities who are usually busy in the summer months and less strenuously occupied during the winter months, to take advantage of gaining this training. The cost will be $30 for the period including instruction and board.
