"For 50 years, Fort Ord prepared the nation's youth for survival in its defense around the world; now CSUMB prepares youth to survive the world."

On June 1, 1996, California State University Monterey Bay took a unique step forward in creating a new kind of university-veteran relationship with the initiation of the Fort Ord Alumni Association. Developing on the Fort Ord veteran's desire to "turn swords into plowshares" the association involves its members in the advancement of the university, with a strong emphasis on student scholarships.

Decades of cavalry units, training groups, and the Light Fighter division of the 1980's produced countless veterans and government civilians who lived, trained and worked at Fort Ord, California. The goals of the Fort Ord Alumni Association are historical preservation and continued support of current students through scholarships.
