IS on The Naval Training Center, San Diego, had its in- ception in 1916 when Mr. William Kettner, Con- gressman from the Eleventh Congressional District of California and spokesman for the San Diego Chamber of Commerce, interested the Honorable Franklin D. Roosevelt, then Assistant Secretary of the Navy, in establishing a naval training activity on the shores of San Diego Bay. Due to the Nation,s entry into World War I, further development of this plan was postponed until 1919, when Congress au- thorized acceptance by the Navy of the present site of the Training Center.
