          Dear Mr. Grant,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 11 record series and 4 file units relating to Fort George Wright from the 1910s. We also located Central Decimal Files, 1917 - 1925 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office (Record Group 407) that may include a report on the training in the “Camps and Posts” project files. Finally, we located Records Relating to the History of the War Department, 1918 - 1941 (documenting 1898 - 1941) in the Records of the War Department General and Special Staffs (Record Group 165) that may have files about Fort George Wright. Please note that most training records would have been disposed of after their initial administrative use under War Department record management regulations. For more information about these records, please email the various references listed as the contacts for these records in the Catalog descriptions.


          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from either RDT2 or RDT1. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
