The Historic Trust in conjunction with the Vancouver Barracks Military Association will be once again hosting Military History Talks on the third Thursday of each month from January through June of 2019. These presentations are free and run from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM at the Marshall House. These are a great way to learn more about the rich history of the Fort and Barracks.
On Thursday, May 16th, listen as Mr. Paul Fanning talks about what Portland Oregon and the City of Vancouver did during World War II to ensure their safety from combat enemy attacks. Military bases across the U.S. built up their security and war plans. Learn about the comprehensive plan used by the Vancouver Barracks to ensure the safety of our city as well as support the war effort abroad.
Space is limited for the Military Talks, so book your spot today at The Historic Trust online.
