Fort Ord gun range, 1965

Fort Ord gun range circa 1965.  Fort Ord was a U.S. Army post on Monterey Bay. It was established in 1917 as a maneuver area and field artillery target range and was closed in September 1994. Fort Ord was one of the most attractive locations of any U.S. Army post, because of its proximity to the beach and California weather. The 7th Infantry Division was its main resident for many years.  (Monterey County Herald Archives)
