Biographical Note

The construction of Camp Chaffee, named after Major General Adna R. Chaffee, began in 1940 with the first complement of soldiers arriving the week of December 7, 1941. The mission of the post was to train U.S. soldiers for combat in Europe, Africa and the Pacific. Its primary focus was armor training. Camp Chaffee served as a key military training installation throughout the course of the war. Following World War II, Camp Chaffee became Fort Chaffee and continued to train U.S. Army personnel in a variety of military specialties.
