CA-176 Benicia Arsenal


On this historic site for more than a century military history was written. The loyalty, courage and devotion of the military and the civilian who served their country here furnished material for a brilliant page in the saga of the Far West. What we say here - will like autumn leaves, soon fall and fade away. What they did here will live forever. As the final curtain fall on the 115th anniversary of the founding of Benicia Arsenal, a grateful nation salutes you.
