Fall 2014

This Veterans Day, Vancouver USA salutes all of our past and active military service men and women for their service defending our country and protecting our freedom.

Vancouver has always been a military community at its core, with roots dating back to the Hudson's Bay Company at Fort Vancouver, the Spruce Mill Production division headquartered at the Vancouver Barracks in World War I and the Kaiser Shipyards along the Vancouver waterfront during World War II. The community continues this military tradition with countless area citizens who have stepped up to serve their country and continue to do so post-service with community awareness events, veteran affairs groups and military support networks.
