Camp Wolters IRTC Booklet
All of the following photos comes from a booklet printed and made available to trainees at Camp Wolters during the WWII era. This booklet provided valuable information about the training at Camp Wolters and was often sent back to the trainees' families and friends to show them about their stay at Camp Wolters.

The booklet was large in size (9" x 12"),  and contained 40 printed pages of photos with accompanying text. It was printed by Albert Love Enterprises of Atlanta, GA.

A scan of all the pages can be viewed at a Photo Gallery .

This book was similar in concept to the Souvenir Book and to the IRTC Doughboy booklet . The Souvenir Book was also specific to Camp Wolters, while the "I am a Doughboy" booklet was generalized to the nine Infantry Replacement Training Centers in World War II.
