Administratively discharged after an 11/06/1936 hearing for "failure to work" and supposedly organizing a strike - he was the spokesman for a group of "boys" who felt they hadn't had sufficient chow the day before. His CO's assessment was "hot tempered; indecisive; average worker; irresponsible" but his overall service was characterized as "honest and faithful" entitling him to a satisfactory rating.

  1. How did you go about receiving this information...my father was William H Brummitt with CCC Company 1522, SP-3 Camp Beaver, Clifftop, West Virginia.

    His date of birth was 13 Nov 1913
