Description

A newspaper article by Captain Charles Henry Coe (1856-1954) regarding veterans in Florida Keys during the hurricane season. In the article, Capt. Coe argues that there is "no reasonable excuse for allowing the veterans to remain on low-lying keys in flimsily constructed shacks" during the hurricane season. Coe also criticizes the authorities in charge of the veterans' camps for not evacuating its residents by prearranged transportation.
