Inscription
During World War II a guard house stood just outside the brick entrance gates to Moton Field. The framed structure closest to you is a representation of the guard house. The historic entrance gates are just beyond. How excited the young cadets must have been the first time he passed the guard house and entered Moton Field.

Primary flight training. The anticipation was like nothing I'd ever experienced in my life. All my boyhood dreams of flying...came together....My goal was to get in that place and learn how to fly it.

Dr. Robert F. Bowers, 2001

Bottom left:
Security was important at Moton Field, which had a small guard force to screen access to the site and to police activities. With eligible men training for combat, women had opportunities to assist with the war effort. One of them, Carrie Campbell is shown here checking a vehicle as it enters the field.

Bottom right:
This was a typical scene after 1943. Guards checked vehicles entering and leaving the field.
