Vermont Military Housing
Vermont was initially settled in the early 18th century by both the British and French, and battles between the two nations continued until the French defeat in the French and Indian War, after. During the American Revolution, Vermont declared autonomy individually from the original 13 colonies, even though the Continental Congress refused to recognize it. Vermont was finally accepted to the union as the 14th state in 1790, after 14 years as a independent republic. Nowadays, Vermont's mountains are a favorite destination for snowboarders and skiers. It is the nation's top maker of maple syrup and is the house of the popular Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
Vermont has no major military basee except a national guard facility located in South Burlington, Vermont. It operated as an active duty U.S. Air Force installation from the early 1950s until 1960 as Ethan Allen Air Force Base. Following the closure of Ethan Allen AFB, the installation was transferred to the Vermont Air National Guard for use as an Air National Guard base. The facility operates alongside Burlington International Airport.
