Camp San Ramon
Camp San Ramon was established as a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) camp that worked on US Soil Conservation Service projects in the East Bay area. Actually located near Danville and also known as Camp SCS-14, the camp was "garrisoned" 10 July 1939 to 1 August 1942 by CCC Company 2933. This company was made up of veterans and led by Organized Reserve Corps (now Army Reserve) officers and some civil service employees performing support and administrative support. The camp was located in the vicinity of Camino Tassajara and Old Blackhawk Road.
The War Department then took over the camp to house a Special Training Unit that provided remedial training to members of the 101st Anti-Aircraft Artillery Brigade. This Brigade was responsible for providing air defense to the San Francisco Bay area. There is also evidence the the Naval Construction Battalion Replacement Training Center located at Camp Parks may have used the camp area to cunduct quarry operations and pre-deployment training. There is also anecdotal information the there was elements of an Italian Service Unit also operating on the camp.
