Biographical/Historical Note

Camp Gordon was constructed during America's rush to mobilize during World War I and was one of the sixteen temporary military training camps that were developed to prepare U.S. soldiers for war. The camp opened in July 1917 in Chamblee, Georgia which is northeast of Atlanta in Dekalb County, Georgia. The camp became the training site of the 82nd All Airborne Division of the U.S. Army.
