Boys Line Up for Morning Inspection in CCC Barracks

This 1940 photograph was taken at a camp in Nebraska National Forest, near Halsey, Nebraska. Camp officers routinely inspected barracks in order to promote good hygiene and discipline among CCC enrollees. The typical day in the camp began with Reveille, or wake up, at 6:00am followed by breakfast at 6:30am.
