The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District delivered a state-of-the-art training center to The Army School System at Fort Hunter Liggett, California, Nov. 5, 2019. Lt. Col. Laura Shiplet, district deputy commander, joined Maj. Gen. Bruce Hackett, 80th Training Command commanding general, Brig. Gen. Matthew Baker, 102nd Training Division commanding general, and Col. Charles Bell, Ft. Hunter Liggett garrison commander, in a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening.
The 48,600 sq. ft. facility will graduate 1,700 Soldiers per year in occupations like anti-terrorism and force protection. The facility includes a general instruction building, vehicle maintenance shop for light maintenance instruction, and storage building.
USACE's Louisville District was responsible for the design and contracting for the facility's construction, while the Sacramento District's Field Office at the base executed the project.
Fort Hunter Liggett is recognized as the military's premier Total Force Training Center, and is the U.S. Army Reserve's largest training installation, at 165,000 acres. (U.S. Army photo by Ken Wright)
