2023 marks 100 Years of Liberty Station! The Centennial anniversary is not only a milestone for San Diego and its rich military history but also the celebration of a successful adaptive reuse project. Recognizing that Liberty Station is built on the grounds where 1.75 million recruits and 1 million school sailors once walked, is awe-inspiring.  Learn about the stories of past recruits that have gone through war, been captured as POWs, and went through boot camp at Liberty Station’s Naval Training Center. Their stories have left a legacy of honor on the grounds.
