Establishment
During World War II, Fort Bliss focused on training anti-aircraft artillery battalions (AAA). In September 1940 the Coast Artillery's anti-aircraft training center was established, and in 1941 the 1st Tow Target Squadron arrived to fly target drones using the B-26 Marauder (the 6th, 19th, & 27th Tow Target Squadrons were at the nearby Biggs Field). On August 3, 1944, the Anti-Aircraft Artillery School was ordered from Camp Davis to Fort Bliss to make the training of anti-aircraft gunners easier, and they became the dominant force at Fort Bliss following the departure of the U.S. 1st Cavalry Division. Fort Bliss is a United States Army post in the U.S. states of New Mexico and Texas. With an area of about 1,700 square miles (4,400 km2), it is the Army's second-largest installation, behind the adjacent White Sands Missile Range.

B-26 Marauder
From the date the first B-26 Marauder was shipped to the United States War Department in 1939, the B-26 began operation for the United States Army Air Corps. It would remain in operation for them until 20 June 1941 when it was renamed the Army Air Forces; it would operate for them until the end of World War II. During this period the B-26 Marauder and its many variants were operated by many units on many continents and serving in many different theaters of conflict. Amazingly the B-26 which had a poor reputation among pilots would end the war with the lowest casualty rating of any medium range bomber flown by these forces.
