    While I’m sure some outdoor scenes were shot at White Sands, far more minutes of the film were filmed in Imperial County CA. The “highway of death” burned vehicles, and the nighttime “cooking sausage – burned down the camp” scenes were shot at the former Holtville airport. The scenes where “Swofford and Troy have the enemy in their sights but can’t take the shot” were filmed in the Superstition Mountains in western Imperial County. The Interior tent scenes where they fake Swofford’s tattoo, and finally give Troy’s his, were filmed in the former Heilig Myers building in El Centro. And finally, the parade – bus ride was filmed in downtown El Centro. I know this because I witnessed much of the filming of this movie.
