Fort Chaffee

Fort Chaffee Maneuver Training Center was first established in 1941 for the Army National Guard.

It is located in the state of Arkansas near the city of Fort Smith.

Fort Smith is actually on the borderline with Oklahoma.

This fort was founded to help increase the size of the United States Army in preparation for World War II.

The government payed $1.35 million to local residents for the 15,163 acres of the fort.

This fort was named after Major General Adna R. Chaffee Jr. He played a crucial role in World War I when he advocated for cavalry officers to start using tanks.

Since then, he has been dubbed the "Father of the Armored Force." Many music fans may know Fort Chaffee from Elvis Presley's short stay here.

That's right, it was at Fort Chaffee that Elvis got his first military haircut in the famous Building 803.
