Fort Irwin

Someone just asked me if I ever heard of Fort Irwin. Here is some basic info. Thanks for the asking!

Fort Irwin provides realistic joint and combined arms training focused on developing Soldiers, leaders, and units of America’s Army for success on the 21st century battlefield.
Fort Irwin is located approximately 37 miles northeast of Barstow, California midway between Las Vegas, Nevada and Los Angeles, California. The High Mojave Desert’s hills and mountains surround the installation.

    I served in the Army for 10 years and deployed to the National Training Center (NTC) at Ft. Irwin twice. Each training tour lasted around 5 weeks. The NTC is a huge open area which is designed for large scale simulated battles between hundreds of vehicles including tanks, personnel carriers, helicopters, Humvees and more.
