EDINBURGH, Ind. — Indiana’s Camp Atterbury is getting a new name and a new peacetime mission as it prepares for the end of its role as a mobilization site for troops deploying to war.

The installation near Edinburgh was built for World War II and was activated in 2003 as a mobilization site for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The facility has since deployed more than 175,000 service members and civilians.

The Daily Journal reports that will change next year, when Camp Atterbury will be deactivated as a mobilization site.

Military officials say the installation will soon be known as Atterbury-Muscatatuck to integrate the facility with the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center in southern Indiana.

Camp Atterbury will continue to provide training and hopes to increase its focus on cybercrimes.
