Camp Newspaper - The Victory News

The Victory News was the camp's newspaper which was published by the Public Relations Office at the encampment. It was printed at The Record-Argus newspaper in Greenville, PA. It was an eight page weekly paper that was distributed every Thursday for free to the officers and the men under this command. The first edition of the paper was April 15, 1943 and its final edition was November 30, 1944.
During it's existence the Victory News had three different mastheads.
The first masthead, which was a freehand drawing, was used from April 15, 1943 through August 19, 1943. At that time the camp was known as the Shenango Personnel Replacement Depot (Camp Shenango).

The only change to the last masthead was the name of the camp, as it had been renamed Camp Reynolds after Pennsylvania civil war hero Major General John F. Reynolds who was killed in the first day of battle at Gettysburg. This masthead was used from September 23, 1943 till the paper ended on November 30, 1944.
