Camp Carson was established in 1942 shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor during World War II. Camp Carson was named in honor of Kit Carson, the famous Army officer who was also known for organizing fur trapping expeditions to the Rocky Mountains during the mid 1800’s. Camp Carson received its designation as an Army Fort in 1954 and in 2007 the official motto of Fort Carson was coined “The Best Hometown in the Army”.
