Facility Profile

Our School is built on the site of Camp Sevier, a U.S. Army training camp built toward the end of World War 1. Over 100,000 soldiers trained here before entering the way in Europe. Camp Sevier's 30 division, "Old Hickory', received more honors than almost any other division in World War I.
