The M1917 Army Ambulance
Presented by MSG Jack Giesen, USAR Retired
Over the past year, the Vancouver Barracks Military Association has constructed a replica of the Model 1917, US Army Ambulance, as part of their commemoration of the 100-year anniversary of World War I. This talk will be the public unveiling of the completed ambulance. Weather permitting, this talk will take place outside, where the audience can see the replica ambulance as well as uniforms and equipment. If the weather is bad, the talk will take place indoors, but with replica uniforms, and video footage of the ambulance construction.
The May military history talk has been pulled from the usual third Thursday in order to coincide with the Council on America’s Military Past (CAMP) 51st Annual Military History Conference that is taking place May 3rd – 7th in Vancouver, Washington.
