Fort Ord basic training, 1969

Young men line up in formation after getting their heads shaved during the initial stages of basic training at Fort Ord in June of 1969.  In 1947, Fort Ord became the home of the 4th Replacement Training Center. During the 1950s and 1960s, Fort Ord was a staging area for units departing for war, and at one time had 50,000 troops on the installation.  The post continued as a center for instruction of basic and advanced infantrymen until 1976, when the training area was deactivated and Fort Ord again became the home of the 7th Infantry Division.  (Monterey County Herald archives)
