Post s War Vets Addressed by CO The importance of the functions of Camp Shanks and the vital contributions of this post to Allied victory were emphasized.Monday by Col. Harrie D. W. Riley. Commanding Officer. He spoke at Victory Hall to all troops with overseas experience who are now part ' that the personal records of every single man are completely up-to- date In every respect . . . “ AH of you should know by vir ­ tue of your own experience what has happened when men were not pro ­ perly processed before • being sent into combat. Therefore you should know how vitally important it is that every detail of your work here at Camp Shanks be accom ­ plished as efficiently and as per ­ fectly as is humanly possible . ; . “ One more little thing which will surprise you. You may not real ­ ize it but it is true — by virtue of your overseas experience, you are a model and example to those sol ­ diers in this camp who have not had the opportunity to experience your kind of soldiery. \Like it of not, many men in this camp will use your conduct and your work ae, a standard for themselves. Live up to the best tradition of your old outfit. By so doing, you will continue to bring credit to your old outfit and to yourselves, as wpll as to the new Outfit of which you are now a ' part. ” ...... ................ '............. ^ ------ T of the Station Complement. After welcoming the veterans to Camp Shanks, Col. Riley said: “ Many of you men came from outfits of which you are very ..proud. You have every right to be 'proud of your . old outfit. But all things change and each of you has become an Integral part | of what is to you a new outfit, ' In reality this new outfit is another old outfit — an old outfit -which has a splendid record of efficient per ­ formance to maintain. You men have all done good work with your old outfit. You are expected to continue to do that same good work here. We know you will. “ This job at Camp Shanks is in every way a man-size job. With time and experience you will come more and more aware of the true importance of your efforts and achievements right here. “ I know very well that some of you men who have been rotated or invalided back home have many friends who are still fighting on the other side ... It hiay seem a little difficult to believe right now, but it is true that you can lend them that same helping hand in a different, but no less important way »bjr doing your assigned job here, to ‘ the best of your ability. y. .... .., ;'*■ ■ ■ “ Exactly what does this post do, and why is it important? Organ ­ izations come to Camp Shanks from every Army installation in tl>c country. They come here for their final check-up.

She speaks in a low, quiet manner, her hands clasped tightly in her lap, with a natural dignity that goes so well with her becomingly old-fashioned, upsweep hairdo. ■ “ The work I am doing is vital, and humanly interesting. But in the ’ minds of so many people the emphasis often falls on the bulk of it. I like to feel that I am helping each individual, perhaps only one. man in the . armed forces. ” And she added, “ At least we don ’ t get lost in generalities. ” . Mrs. Fulton ’ s work is very vital. Major Conway says.
