Fort Ord Dunes State Park

From World War II until Fort Ord's closure in 1994, there dunes echoed with the sound of small arms fire. Rifle and machine gun ranges here gave thousands of U.S. Army Infantrymen the marksmanship skills needed to serve their nation in times of both war and peace. Fort Ord's varied topography, from ocean beaches to forested hills, made it an ideal basic training center for infantry mission throughout the world.
