Military History Talk – Waiting for the Cold War to Heat Up
February 23 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Trust is excited to host the Vancouver Barracks Military Association’s 2023 military history talk series. Join us for the first talk of the year and learn more about the history of the Vancouver Barracks.
After World War II, the Vancouver Barracks went from being the Pacific Northwest’s premier Regular Army post to playing a more minor role. This change had major effects on the local community that are still felt today. From the late 1940s to 2011, the Vancouver Barracks become the home to many Army Reserve and National Guard units that drew their soldiers from the local community. Who were the major units at the Vancouver Barracks? And what significant activities happened there? Join speaker Maj. Jeff Davis (U.S. Army, ret.) for this fascinating discussion!
