Sierra Army Depot logo Our focus is to support our military service members who defend our nation. Our mission has changed completely since the establishment of the installation in 1942. Sierra has transitioned to a depot that supports the Department of Defense and various Interagencies within our core competency capabilities - rapid deployment, power projection, and industrial operations.
