The Community: Fort Rucker/Dothan, AL
The town of Dothan, AL, locatred in the southeastern corner of AL
20 miles from Georgia and 16 miles from Florida, was established as
Poplar Head in 1885 as a trading community. The first settlers
built their homes around a small spring in the early 1800s and as
time progressed, built a trading town. During the Civil War, the
town was raided many times.
After the Civil War, the town began to grow. Industry came to
Poplar Head in the form of sawmills and turpentine factories. This
led to more growth which led to the decision to form an actual
town. However, there was already a Poplar Head in Alabama.
Dothan's name comes from a Bible verse (Genesis 37:17) stating: For
I heard them say, "Let us go to Dothan." The township was
officially incorporated on Nov. 10, 1885. Growth was further
spurred by the arrival of the railroad, and that growth led to the
creation of Houston County in 1903. But it wasn't until a scientist
named Dr. George Washington Carver began to experiment with peanuts
(among other things) that the town truly flourished. Because of Dr.
Carver's studies, peanuts became a staple crop for the area. With
rich soil, Dothan quickly became the Peanut Capital of the world.
Dothan continues to honor Dr. Carver's discoveries at the George
Washington Carver Interpretative Museum in downtown Dothan and the
National Peanut Festival.
You can still see much of Dothan's history when you drive through.
From the Dothan Opera House to the various parks and murals, it's
clear that Dothan is proud of its history. You can spend the day
checking out the Dothan Area Botanical Gardens or the Wiregrass
Museum of Art. In the spring, walk down the Dogwood and Azalea
Trail, or you can even just spend the day looking at the outdoor
murals and art.

The Facility: Fort Rucker Army Base
Fort Rucker and Army Aviation trace their origins back to earlier
eras, as both were products of World War II. During World War II,
America conducted a Client mobilization unprecedented in its
history in terms of total numbers. The United States put into
uniform over 16 million men and approximately 333,000 women. This
mobilization called for the creation of new training camps and
military bases, including Camp Rucker, named in honor of Colonel
Edmund W. Rucker, a Civil War Confederate Officer, who was given
the honorary title of "General." With the consolidation of all Army
Aviation flight training at Fort Rucker in 1973, the post became
the Mecca for Army aviators. Air Force helicopter pilots have also
trained here since 1971, as have students from more than 60 foreign
