Admiral [Fort Meade], Maryland
Established as a World War I cantonment in July 1917, Camp Meade was built to serve as the training camp for the 79th Infantry Division (National Army) which occupied the camp from August 1917 – July 1918 when it transferred overseas. After the 79th Division left, the camp was expanded to include [Benjamin] Franklin Cantonment. In December 1918 it was designated as a demobilization center. After the war the camp was retained as a permanent reservation. It was briefly known as Fort Leonard Wood in 1928, but became what is still known as Fort George C. Meade in 1929.
