Ravenna Army Ammunition Plant
Uniting National Defense and Environmental Restoration

The former Ravenna Army Ammunition Plant (RVAAP), now known as Camp James A. Garfield Joint Military Training Center (Camp James A. Garfield), produced ammunition for U.S. military during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam conflict.

Administrative accountability for the entire 21,683-acre facility has been transferred to the United States Property and Fiscal Officer (USP&FO) for Ohio and subsequently licensed to the Ohio Army National Guard (OHARNG) for use as a military training site, Camp James A. Garfield.

The RVAAP restoration program involves cleanup of former production/operational areas throughout the facility related to former activities conducted under the RVAAP.

The next RAB meeting is scheduled for April 17, 2024 at 6 pm. The agenda and location are TBD.
