The Greatest Generation, Las Vegas and World War II
When the majority of us think of World War II we rarely think of Las Vegas. Yet, it was here that Basic Magnesium supplied the valuable mineral to the War effort and the Las Vegas Gunnery School trained pilots for missions over the Pacific and European theaters.
The citizens of the small town of Las Vegas did their patriotic duty by growing Victory Gardens, participating in Rubber and Can Drives, rationing and sending their sons, brothers and husbands off to war.
The impact the War had on Las Vegas would help the small desert community grow into the Entertainment Capital of the World.
