Dale County, Alabama in Southeastern Alabama was named in honor of General Samuel Dale and has a long, rich history of military involvement. It was once inhabited by the Creek Indian tribe, and was ceded to the United States in the 1814 Treaty of Fort Jackson. Today, it continues its long tradition of being a military community, and is home to Fort Rucker U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence.
