Gowen Field

The Idaho Military Museum is back open for business after being closed since October 2013.  

The museum started at Gowen Field in the late 1980s and eventually moved off base into a nearby warehouse. 

The 391st Combat Engineer Company will be welcomed home Saturday at Gowen Field.  98 Idahoans are part of the unit, most of them from the Treasure Valley.  The Army Reserve Soldiers recently came home from their second tour of duty in Iraq.  The “Welcome Home Warrior Citizen” ceremony is for soldiers and their family members. 

Each soldier gets a label pin set, a commemorative coin, and an encased U. S. flag.
