Excerpt from Camp Dix: Described and Photographed
In the brigade each man is carefully watched, and any special attainment which he may develop is encouraged. If a regiment of engineers needed fifty men to fill up its ranks, a call would be made to the depot brigade. The offi... cers would then select fifty men who are particularly adapted to such work. Or if machinists, cooks, barbers, chauffeurs, infantrymen, artillerymen are wanted, the depot brigade supplies them on demand. The value of such an organization is incalculable, for the vacancies which occur in the line from time to time may be filled up at once, not by recruits who must be trained, but by men whose training has been completed.
