The museum will highlight the units that have been part of the Fort Custer history since the post was established in 1917 as Camp Custer. Some of these include the 85th Division in World War I, the 5th "Red Diamond" Infantry Division in World War II, the 339th "Polar Bear" Regiment, which served in northern Russia at the end of the First World War, and the World War I 14th Division, (Regular Army). This unit was popularly known as the "Wolverine Division". It was organized and demobilized at Camp Custer at the end of the war and was never sent into battle.
