Camp Irwin, California (postcard)

Like sentinels -- these anti-aircraft guns sweep the sky at Camp Irwin.

Back of card: Camp Irwin, California, a huge anti-aircraft artillery training center, subpost of Camp Haan, is situated on the Mojave Desert about two hundred miles from Los Angeles, California. Here one of the world’s finest firing ranges is located. At Camp Irwin soldiers live and are trained under simulated war conditions — targets bob up and down, men fire on moving difficult obstacles both in the air and on the ground.
