Volunteered for service in the United States Army at the beginning of the war, but was over age, and not accepted. He then tendered his services to the other war work organizations. He made 27 speeches during the various drives, covering Mecklenburg and adjoining counties, traveling in his own car at his own expense, day and night, wherever called.

Mr. Nixon was accepted August 20, 1918, for regular “Y” work, and prepared himself for overseas work. He was placed at Camp Greene as Building Secretary of “Y” Hut 106, where he remained in active “Y” work until Camp Greene was abandoned, making every day and night interesting and instructive for the soldiers around his hut.

Mr. Nixon gave up a lucrative law practice for this work, having been an active practitioner at the Charlotte bar for 26 years, and re-entering the practice after Camp Greene was abandoned.
