Truly Awesome! What an amazing image! 650 officers and enlisted men of Auxiliary Remount Depot No 326, a Cavalry unit, created this human representation of a horse head. It was taken at Camp Cody, N.M. sometime during WW1… Camp Cody located 3 miles northwest of Deming, New Mexico, was a World War I Army camp from 1916 to 1919

Nancy Harkness Love, September 22, 1942. With the approach of World War II, Love recognized the coming need for pilots to ferry aircraft and identified highly qualified women pilots who could perform such duties. In September 1942, the Army Air Corps' Air Transport Command approved the creation of a temporary, civilian women's flying corps, the Women's Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron (WAFS), under her direction. She is pictured here leaning against a Fairchild PT-19A. SI-96-15604
