Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum, located in Carrabelle, Florida, was established to honor and preserve the heritage of the men and women who trained at the WWII camp. Camp Gordon Johnston opened in 1942 for the purpose of training Infantry Divisions and their support units in amphibious operations by U. S. Army Engineer Special Brigades [ESB]. This camp trained a quarter of a million men, closing in March of 1946. Three infantry divisions, two special brigades and three Engineer Special Brigades left here after receiving amphibious training to confront tyranny both in Europe and the Pacific. Visitors can learn about their dedication, fears and heroism at the Camp Gordon Johnston WWII Museum.
The Museum sponsors a weekend to honor all veterans on the second weekend of March each year, festivities include a parade, reunion of veterans, a dinner dance and more.
