The Marines first came to Twentynine Palms in 1952. Since then, the Marine Air Ground Task Force Training Command, Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center has trained thousands of proud Marines, many of whom were deployed during Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm. When the troops came home from the Persian Gulf in 1991, more than 40,000 people crowded into the city for “The Mother of All Parades.”
