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.

1937 · The Neutrality Act

The Neutrality Acts were passed in response to the growing conflicts in Europe and Asia during the time leading up to World War II. The primary purpose was so the US wouldn't engage in any more foreign conflicts. Most of the Acts were repealed in 1941 when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.
