Check Six: Patriot Hall at McGhee Tyson ANG Base

November 30, 2021

The I.G. Brown Training and Education Center was established in 1968 as the Professional Military Education Center. Most of the campus during this period was made up of old World War II buildings.

At the time, Patriot Hall was the only large auditorium on the campus. The sides of the auditorium had the flags of all 54 states and territories. The first day of the Leadership School, the NCO Academy and the Academy of Military Science had students sitting at attention waiting for the instructors to arrive.

At the end of training, graduates walked across this stage to receive their diplomas.

The undated photograph on the left appears to be a Business and Industry Day briefing. The photograph on the right appears to ba a graduation event.
