At the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center, after finishing coffee and learning about the Vogel House, guests are provided a campus tour to learn about projects currently being worked on by ERDC employees. The Geotechnical and Structures Laboratory’s Modular Protective System Multipurpose Guard Tower, shown in the photo, provides over watch for entry control point and perimeter protection. The tower may be reconfigured for different uses and has a multi-layered armor panel system allowing tailorable security based on the threat level.

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Commander Col. Bryan Green, and wife Yana, recently enjoyed hosting family members again during their second-ever ERDC Spouses Coffee and Campus Tour. 

Family members met up at the ERDC Headquarters and were transported to the Vogel House as guests of residents Col. and Mrs. Green. All were treated to coffee, tea and homemade snacks.  

During the coffee, visitors had the opportunity to walk through the Vogel House and learned a bit of history behind the house and the property that it sits on within the City of Vicksburg, Mississippi.  

After coffee, families toured the ERDC campus to learn about some of the great projects and programs that our employees are currently working on.  

The idea behind the coffee and tour was to show appreciation for families while at the same time, helping them gain a better understanding of the important role their loved ones play in keeping our nation safe, both at home and abroad.
