Camp Forrest oral history project debuts at Arnold

David Hiebert, Arnold Air Force Base historian, presents an account of Camp Forrest for 27 base personnel during a cultural walk held Oct. 27, 2009. The concrete foundations pictured are similar to the physical record found on the African-American cantonment area located elsewhere on one of the Army’s largest training bases during World War II. Hiebert and Shawn Chapman, the base archeologist, are working with AMEC’s Hillori Schenker to conduct archival research, including oral histories, on the African-American soldiers who were at Camp Forrest.
