I am so excited to be back in Washington DC, and to be able to report that we are actually, like, here! The Washington DC Military Base has been a great space to explore our city and our country’s history, and we have been lucky enough to go many times. I have been lucky to catch up with some of our awesome bloggers and friends from out of town that are currently going through the same thing.
One of our most recent sites visits was a Friday night last month to watch the first-ever DC military base tour happen in the nation’s capital. In that visit, we got to meet soldiers from the US Army’s 101st Airborne Division and spend the night in the area close to the DC Armory. We even got to see one of the new DC Metro- stations, located along the National Mall.
Washington DC military base (DCM) is a military installation that is located in the nation’s capital. It is a central hub for the United States in military affairs and is now home to the 101st Airborne Division. These soldiers are on a variety of different missions for the 101st and it’s not uncommon to find them working on a mission in their own unit. It’s also a common thing to have a soldier be stationed at DCM.
Some of these soldiers are stationed at DCM because they need to be on duty 24/7. It is a place where military officers can relax, run things, and get some down time. It also often serves as a training base for new recruits because DCM has a great range of different missions and there are a lot of soldiers there to help train new recruits.
DCM has a lot of soldiers, some of which are not just soldiers to be stationed at. In DCM, there are troops stationed on all the bases in the city as well as in DCM itself. DCM has both a base which is a real base and a base which is a training area. DCM also has a base in the middle of the city.
DCM is located near the Pentagon. This is true because it is a real base. It is located in the middle of the big city. And it is also true that DCM has a training area on every base in the city. In fact, some of the soldiers there are actually new recruits.
The reason Washington is home to a base is because it is a separate district in the city. It is not the “center” of the city and it is not the “capital” of the district. DC itself has a district, the District of Columbia, which is in the center of the city. It is also not the “capital” of the District of Columbia. DC is the capital of the entire nation.
DCM has the most veteran population in the country at 40,000. But only about 15,000 or so of them are actually active soldiers, because the rest have either moved around or are retired. Of the others, most are active in the military reserves, the National Guard, or the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
DCM is the most populous of the three districts, with about 75,000 people. The District of Columbia itself has about 15,000 people.
The other districts are much smaller. DC has about 70,000 people, the District of Columbia has about 50,000, and the District of Columbia military base has about 32,000. The District of Columbia military base is the busiest in the country.
