Regarding Frank W. Barker, George J. Kennedy, Walter James, Earnest R. Tippin, Frank J. Vitale. An unusually well cared for marker. Do not know if it is the CCC Camps members, passing wildland firefighters, or dedicated USFS staff stopping by during lunch to polish the lettering. Few markers receive this level of care.
