On Saturday, 09 August 2014, members of the Lawton-Ft. Sill Amateur Radio Club honored the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) with a special event in the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge.  Event coordinator Santos Rubio said amateur radio and the CCC share an interesting history.  During the Great Depression, many CCC camps were located far from major towns, and the only way for CCC personnel to contact their families was through a camp’s amateur radio operator.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
