However, in order to obtain a large military base during World War II, the area was renamed Warner Robins in honor of Brigadier General Augustine Warner Robins. The city was hit by the devastating F4 tornado in April of 1953. Warner Robins is also nicknamed the "International City," due to its large number of residents from different nations.
