Fort Ord: A Sense of Place is a thought-provoking compilation of new student documentary and experimental shorts, centering on the ecology, community, and history of what was once the largest U.S. Army base in the American West. Most soldiers deployed to the Vietnam War were trained at Fort Ord—an activity that inadvertently preserved the wilderness areas. The Environmental Protection Agency has identified Fort Ord as a Superfund site, a new national monument and a university for underserved students. Many of the students are also part of a group that recorded over one hundred veterans’ histories for inclusion in the Veterans History Project of the Library of Congress.
