Human Satue of Liberty

I find it amazing that this photo below, taken so many years ago, actually still  exists! And now, someone has put it online for all of us to see. This INCREDIBLE picture was taken in 1918. It is 18,000 men  preparing for war in a training camp at Camp Dodge, in Iowa. EIGHTEEN THOUSAND MEN!!  What a priceless gift from our grandfathers!
