A good book to read about the Spruce Division during WW1 is, "Soldiers in the Woods, The U.S. Army's Spruce Division in World War One", by Rod Crossley. The book was published by Timber Times in 2014 in Portland. It has lots of info, photos and maps in WA and OR. The War Dept. approved the creation of the Spruce Productive Division on Oct. 17, 1917 and disbanded April 7, 1919.
Dang, that book is expensive.

Man, stretch thy reason hither, so thou mayest comprehend these things. Johannes Kepler
My great grandfather Marvik was in the 14th Spruce Division. Assigned to Vancouver barracks and worked in the Astoria area and Clatsop area. Moved around quite a bit and loaned to other units. Spending quite a bit of time building railroad track.
