Question: I have a few postcards with a faded postmarks. From what I can gather it was a summer camp in Vermont in World War I. Can you help me figure out why my great-uncle was there?
Answer: Camp Vail was located in Lyndon Center, Vermont starting in 1917. It was established to assist the young men of Vermont in the skills of farm labor. Many of the young men were going off to war and the concern that no one could help out with the farms.
