General Patton and the Desert Training Center

Presented by Sid Burks
This is the story of Desert Training Center where in two short years, a million men trained in the Mojave Desert to fight in World War II. Camps housing 15,000 men each sprang up overnight in California, Arizona, and Nevada. The Desert Training Center was planned and initiated by General George S. Patton. Many of the doctrines, strategies, and tactics in armored and airborne warfare that helped win the war were developed at the Desert Training Center.  Today little remains but its legacy lives on.    

Admission $ 5 - free for sponsors ------Beverages will be served
