From the Newsletter:

Camp Lockett, constructed at the beginning of World War II, is the last training facility constructed for mounted cavalry units in Southern California. In addition, Camp Lockett is the last military installation associated with the African American mounted troops, also known as "Buffalo Soldiers" in California.
