Detroit Arsenal is in Macomb County, in the small city of Warren, a manufacturing and residential community situated just north of Detroit. The arsenal is home to TACOM Life Cycle Management Command headquarters, which unites all of the organizations that focus on soldier and vehicle ground systems throughout the entire life cycle. The arsenal is also home to the Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center.
About 20 miles north of Detroit Arsenal is Selfridge Air National Guard Base. Selfridge ANGB is home to many National Guard and reserve units. The base’s exchange, commissary and other services are available to Detroit Arsenal military personnel and their families.
