The Texas Historical Commission (THC) and the Karnes County Historical Commission dedicated an Official Texas Historical Marker, which tells the history of the Kenedy Enemy Alien Detention Station during World War II. The ceremony was held Aug. 8 in Kenedy.

Camp Kenedy served as a World War I training camp, and later as a Civilian Conservation Corps camp. After the station closed, the site became a German, and later a Japanese, enemy prisoner of war camp.

The project, “Japanese Confinement Sites in Texas: An Untold Cultural Legacy of World War II,” is part of the state commission’s national award-winning “Texas in World War II” initiative.

Historical markers, a commemorative brochure, oral history workshops, and a comprehensive statewide site survey are part of the program.
