A organizational summary by the ENVS 560/L Watershed Systems class at CSUMB.


The United States Army is one of the three military departments reporting to the Department of Defense and is composed of two distinct components: active and reserve. The reserve components include the United States Army Reserve and the Army National Guard.

The Army conducts operational and institutional missions. The operational Army includes armies, corps, divisions, brigades, and battalions that conduct full spectrum operations around the world. The institutional organizations provide the infrastructure required to raise, train, equip, deploy, and ensure the readiness of all Army forces [1].

History in the California Central Coast Region

  • The United States Army first came to the Central Coast of California in 1902 when they began building a cantonment area on what is now known as the Presidio of Monterey at the end of the Philippine War.
  • Since then, the Army has established 6 bases in the California Central Coast Region, most of them still in use today, and owns #### acres of land (still need to find how much land they actually own and manage, might need to add up from each individual page).
