Fort Funston (122.499W 37.713N) was located on the Pacific Ocean southwest of San Francisco. The Army acquired some 45 acres (18 hectares) of land here in 1900 but did little with the site until 1917. By the time war broke out in the Pacific, another 150 acres (61 hectares) had been added to the fort , which had two 16" (406mm) guns in casemates, four 12" (305 mm) mortars, four 155mm guns, and three 3" (76mm) antiaircraft guns.
