The barracks are the American infantry training structure in the War against the GLA.


From the Barracks all infantry were trained for battlefield command. The Barracks also housed medical facilities where injured soldiers could return to be healed back to a battle-ready state. For the USA, the Barracks was one of the few buildings that did not require a power plant of some kind to also be in the vicinity. USA could train soldiers to capture buildings if the commander purchased the Capture Building upgrade at the Barracks. Barracks were quite fragile however.
