I would like to once again thank Thomas R. Buecker Curator of the Fort Robinson Museum for helping us to understand the Fort Ord Station Veterinary Hospital and being able to finally see what a horse stock looks like. Tom has provided me with a lot of information for my research.

FORT ROBISON AND THE AMERICAN CENTURY, 1900-1948 by Thomas R. Buecker

2002 Nebraska State Historical Society 242 pps., 91 b&w illustrations, 5 maps. This new book recounts the last half-century of this famous northwestern Nebraska army post as it assumed new roles. In the early twentieth century, Fort Robinson hosted the last of the African American "buffalo soldiers" to serve in Nebraska. In the 1930s the fort was the world's largest U.S. Army Quartermaster Remount Depot, procuring and issuing horses for the military mounted services. Because of its focus on equestrian activities, Fort Robinson earned popular designation as "The Country Club of the Army." During World War II, the fort was the site of the army's primary war dog training center, and a major internment camp for German prisoners of war. Today it is Nebraska's premier state park. The book is based on more than twenty years of research in archival records, supplemented by the personal recollections of men and women who served at Fort Robinson. More than ninety photographs and five maps supplement the narrative.

If you are interested in learning about the U.S. Army Remount Service and the Remount Depot at Fort Robinson I highly recommend reading Tom’s book. Tom’s has spent hours compiling the materials for this book. It is a wonderful read!
