    : The place is pretty photogenic. If somebody does know a little history of it, please post! The links posted in the previous follow-up are not informative.

    : If you really want to learn about Rice and other Desert Training Camps, I suggest you go spend a day visiting the General Patton Memorial Museum in Chiriaco Summit.

    : If you are still out there, please contact me about Rice. Rice was originally called Blythe Junction as it was the railroad shipping point for Blythe for many years. A book has been written with it's history.
