Intertwined with all the cultural elements of Scotland County is a keen sense of commitment to America’s military community, patriotism with deep roots in the rural south.
Part of this is due to our proximity to both Fort Bragg, home of the 82nd Airborne and Special Forces, and to the USAF Air Operations Support Group at Pope AFB. But the singular history of Camp Mackall sheds further light on why many military personnel live and train in Scotland County.
Established in 1942, Camp Mackall was originally a basic-training area for Airborne troops garrisoned at Fort Bragg. Eventually, Camp Mackall also housed the U.S. Army Airborne Command. Today’s servicemen and women are more apt to have fond memories of Camp Mackall as the primary training site for Special Forces personnel, one which includes a mock prisoner of war camp, and “Nasty Nick,” the Col. James “Nick” Rowe Training Compound, considered the toughest obstacle course in the U.S. Army.
