    May 14, 2012

    It's an exciting time to be at Tooele Army Depot (TEAD), Tooele, Utah, as the Army celebrates the depot's 70 years of long selfless history. This is how it all began……. The story of World War II Army depots is one of construction, training and dedicated employees who turned a small, peace time depot system into a vital part of the logistic miracle of World War II. In January of 1942, there was an "authentic" rumor to the effect that one of the Nation's largest ammunition depots would be built at Tooele, Utah. In February, a delegation from the War Department in Washington, D.C. and from the District Engineer Office in Salt Lake City made the initial survey of the site. And what a sight! TEAD was nothing but a dust bowl, thousands of acres of sagebrush. In March, some twenty-six thousand acres were purchased by the Government as a building site for the Tooele Ordnance Depot (TOD), six miles from the shores of the Great Salt Lake, forty miles from Salt Lake City, about three miles from the town of Tooele, and nine miles from the town of Grantsville. April timeframe plans and specifications were drawn and Captain Alvin Howarth and his staff moved onto the site.
