Directory of National Army Newspapers

On the inside of this supplement will be found a United States Army Map, showing the boundaries of the Military Departments of the United States, the locations of the National Army Cantonments, National Guard Camps, Officers Training Camps, and other institutions which are part of our country's activities in the great war “to make the world safe for democracy.”

Below we give a list of publications issued for the soldiers at the various camps. Owing to the constant changes at the camps, we cannot state circulations with any certainty.

TRENCH AND CAMP is published weekly by the National War Work Council of the YMCA in a number of camps, with the co-operation of a publisher of a daily newspaper in the vicinity of each camp. This publisher gathers the local news of the camp, prints the paper and controls the advertising. when advertising is carried. The paper is distributed free to the soldiers by the YMCA branches at each cantonment or camp.
