1917 · Camp Dodge

Original construction of the Camp Dodge began in 1907 and was originally planned to provide a place for the National Guard units to train. In 1917, it was handed over to national authorities and expanded to become the regional training center for World War I forces. The Camp was named after Brigadier General Grenville M. Dodge, who organized Iowa's first National Guard unit. When the war ended, the camp was downsized and turned back over to the state until the start of World War II. Today, Camp Dodge has served only as a Guard and Reserve installation.
