1935, 2750, Orman Dam (Fruitdale) Member
Raymond Witt was born in April of 1913, at Bonesteel, South Dakota and raised on a farm there. Raymond applied for service in the Civilian Conservation Corps at the Gregory County Relief Office in Burke, South Dakota on December 19, 1934. Raymond Witt listed his mother, Mrs. Minnie Witt, as the dependent relative that was to receive the $25 allotment from his cash allowance.
Mr. Witt passed his physical examination in Pierre, S. Dak. On January 4, 1935 and served at Camp DBR-2 Fruitdale, South Dakota from January 5, 1935 to July 8, 1935. His "manner of performance" was listed as: Excellent. He was Honorably Discharged and it was noted that his services were needed at home.
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Museum of South Dakota has compiled a roster of enrollees that served in the CCC in the state. This is an ongoing project and Raymond Witt was not listed on the roster until today, January 19, 2016. Because Mr. Witt's daughter, Benita Mahoney donated copies of her father's service records we are able to include his name. Her inquiry to the National Archives made this possible.
