Kodiak Alaska Military History

Museum is largely hands-on showing life for military personnel through all eras with emphasis on World War II.


A joint operations center here directed Alaskan operations in 1942-1943. The principal advance naval base in Alaska and the North Pacific when World War II broke out, Kodiak’s ships and submarines played a critical role in the Aleutian campaign. Fort Greely, with its coast artillery and infantry troops, stood ready to repel an invader, but in the end the enemy did not come. In April 1943, the Army erected a permanent 8-inch gun battery north of Kodiak and established it as a sub-post of Fort Greely, naming it Fort Abercrombie.
