Fort Custer Training Center

About

Fort Custer was built in 1917 to train and demobilize soldiers during World War I. Fort Custer was also used heavily during World War II, and trained soldiers of the 5th Infantry Division, as well as serving as a POW camp for captured German soldiers.

Fort Custer is currently one of the most heavily used training facilities in the Midwest. It is not only used by the Michigan National Guard, but also by other branches of the armed services, and by soldiers from surrounding states.
