    Fantastic Book of Memories and History

    This pictorial history of Fort Ord, California -- a major army post closed a decade ago -- transports the reader back in time. In tells the story of Fort Ord and the thousands of soldiers who served there through fascinating, inspiring photographs, from the World War I era through the end of the Cold War. There is a magnetic quality to these photographs, reflecting a nostalgic and poignant attraction to a time of relative moral clarity, with its shared experiences and sacrifices, and to a world of seeming innocence gone by that lives only in the memories of those who experienced it. It is a saga of patriotism, devotion, duty, and sacrifice, brought to life on its pages. The photographs are beyond compare, with detailed and interesting captions. Every American should have this wonderful book, in which every photograph (of about 200) is worth more than a thousand words. History at its best!

    Revisiting Ft. Ord

    'When you return to your boyhood town, you'll find that it wasn't the town you longed for...it was your boyhood'. Ft. Ord was part of my boyhood. I remember standing at the Reception Station the night I arrived at Ft. Ord thinking I'll never make it through my two year draft obligation. Thirty-six years have gone by...and they've gone by quickly. From May 6, 1968 through September 30, 1968, I took my Basic Combat Training, Leadership Prep Course and Advanced Individual Training (Infantry) all at Ft. Ord. The fort was extremely active during this time preparing soldiers for Vietnam at the height of the war. I'm sure no one at that time could ever envision the closing of the base and the ultimate decay and destruction that followed. Author Harold Raugh has done a remarkable job defining the history of Ft. Ord through his selection of photographs and captions. Every single photograph evokes memories of a critical time that was shared by every soldier who passed through the gates. All of us who trained or served at Ft. Ord owe Mr. Raugh our thanks and gratitude for taking the time to preserve these memories for us. It's interesting that all these years later, all of my memories of Ft. Ord are good ones! This book will have great meaning for any veteran who had the opportunity to spend any amount of time there. Truly, each one of the pictures speaks volumes and can be identified with in some way. I want to personally thank Mr. Raugh for his efforts...because the book has great meaning for me. Mark Cheresh
