Camp Parks: When War and National Security Came to the San Ramon and Amador Valleys
Virtual Program

Thursday, March 18 at 11:30 am

 

 

Steve Minniear, historian for the town of Dublin CA and past president of the Dublin Historical Society, will present Camp Parks: When War and National Security Came to the San Ramon and Amador Valleys.

 

Today the area around Camp Parks is a growing residential community bordering a BART station. It is hard to imagine that at one time its boundaries spanned from San Ramon to Dublin and played a major role in both our local history and national history. Since 1942, hundreds of thousands of US armed forces personnel lived and trained at this base. It is fair to say Camp Parks played a key role in WW2 involving the pacific theater.
