List of military barracks in Ghana
Barracks are in most cases a group of extended structures built to accommodate military personnel or workers. The English term is derived from French via an old Spanish word “barraca” (hut), primarily referring to non-permanent shelters or huts for numerous men and women and animals, but nowadays barracks are usually permanent residences for military accommodation. The word may apply to individual housing blocks or to complete buildings, and the plural form usually refers to a single structure and may be singular in construction.
The main purpose of barracks is to separate soldiers from the civilian population and reinforce discipline, and training. They are mostly referred to as “discipline factories for soldiers”.
