Atomic Age GIThis Veterans Day and beyond, see the people and places of Fort Ord as it existed in the 20th century, from 1915 to 1995.  Through a grant from the California State Library, the CSUMB Library has digitized images that  focus on the role of  Fort Ord as a training facility, beginning in World War I and continuing until the closure of the base.

Digitized images include photographs, postcards and documents that show soldiers in training and the base environment.
