Camp Bowie

About

Construction of Camp Bowie was begun in September of 1940, shortly before the US joined World War II. In 1943, the base was used as a holding facility for German POW's - many of them from German General Erwin Rommel's Afrika Korps.

Today Camp Bowie is used as an Army Reserve and National Guard Training Center.
