When World War II began in Europe in 1939, the U.S. Army numbered 175,000 men. By the time of Pearl Harbor in December 1941, the army had swelled to over 1.5 million. To accommodate this influx, temporary wooden "mobilization" building like these were built at forts across the nation. Today, these buildings are residences for National Park Service staff. Please respect their privacy.

Fort Hancock was in operation from 1895 to 1974.
