Fort McClellan is turning 100 years old today. On July 18th, 1917, the United States War Department formally established Camp McClellan as a mobilization camp to train soldiers for World War One. The camp was renamed Fort McClellan in 1929. Community Relations Specialist Sergeant First Class Robert Ray says the Fort has had a big impact on the area and its people. A celebration for the milestone is set for August 26th, when the Fort opens to the public. Visitors can see multiple displays and historical documents about the Fort and its mission.
