Detroit Arsenal


Home of the U.S. Army TACOM Life Cycle Management Command Headquarters, the Detroit Arsenal  has played a vital role in our Nation’s defense since the start of World War II.  Located in Warren, Mich., the Detroit Arsenal sprang up seemingly overnight in 1940 with the single focus of producing medium tanks.  Today, the Detroit Arsenal remains ever vigilant as the host for organizations that provide over 70 percent of the systems used in the military.

With  help from the local YMCA, the first Father’s Day celebration was held in Spokane, Washington, in 1910, with support in the United States resulting in attention from several presidents.
