Without being a dole or a handout it provided a job that put food on the table. Building roads, bridges and dams was rebuilding America. Planting trees was meaningful work that gave a man his dignity. The Work Projects Administration (WPA) and the Civilian Conservation Corps ((CCC) were performing tasks that improved the Nation's infrastructure and prepared for a better tomorrow. Young men were learning life skills, continuing their education and receiving hope for the future.
