About This Image

This is the welcome sign to Fort Irwin that is around 35 miles from Barstow, California. To play with there tanks they need to be out in the middle of nowhere. The National Training Center (NTC), located at Fort Irwin, CA, is the only instrumented training facility in the world that is suitable for force-on-force and live fire training of heavy brigade-sized military forces. The realistic training provided at the NTC assures soldiers are adequately prepared to protect and preserve US interests here and abroad. Each month the NTC provides 4000-5000 soldiers, from other installations, the essential training opportunities necessary to maintain and improve military readiness and promote national security.

Hi Jas, Thanks for your nice comment. If you should want to learn more about the training center just so a search for Fort Irwin. That's how I found the information.

Very interesting shot, Alan, and information too. Think we may have gone past here on our Californian trip, last year?
