Speaker Bill Heidner will present "From Patton to Victory - Dynamic Army Training in the Southwest Helps Bring About World War II Victory."
Perhaps the most celebrated general officer of World War II, Gen. George S. Patton, established the Desert Training Center, with Yuma as its southern anchor. Over 1.5 million Army troops came to the Desert Southwest to train for battle. It was an amazing undertaking that helped shape the Army for victory.
