 Company 3558, CCC, was organized at Morganfield, Kentucky, on July 17, 1935, its original roster being drawn almost entirely from the rural districts of Western Kentucky.  The organization was located in the midst of one of that state’s richest agricultural sections, and the personnel engaged in soil conservation work during the entire sojourn in the commonwealth.

 The organization’s greatest claim to fame was born in the swirling waters of the maddened Ohio River during the disastrous flood of 1937. For two full weeks the company was actively engaged in actual rescue work in that section of the valley adjacent to Morganfield. Completely cut off from all methods of communication and cooperating independently of its base of supply the enrollees of Company 3558 labored day and night to effect the rescue of marooned persons and the salvage of property in the small town of Uniontown, Ky.., which was completely demolished by the force of the flood. Due largely to the untiring efforts of members of the organization but one life was lost in that devastated city of eleven-hundred.

 On September 28, 1937, orders were received from District Headquarters, Fort Knox, Kentucky, transferring Company 3558 to the Sixth Corps Area. The movement was accomplished on October 8, 1937, when the organization occupied Camp Eddyville, F-4, Eddyville, Illinois, under jurisdiction of the Jefferson Barracks CCC District, Jefferson Barracks, St. Louis, Missouri. 

 After two months of Forestry work in the Shawnee National Purchase Unit the company again received orders to move. On December 17, 1937, the wheels started rolling toward Oregon.
 It is a far call from the Bluegrass of Old Kentucky to the firclad hills which now surround us. We are becoming “Oregonized” as rapidly as possible.

 Company 3558 is commanded by 2nd Lieut. Edward W. Hartman, Inf.-Res., with Dr. Philip S. Pawling as Camp Surgeon, and William H. Fowler as Educational Adviser.
 The company is located near Coquille, Oregon, not far from Marshfield, one of Oregon’s biggest coastal ports.
