Kamchatka soldiers received their baptism of fire when repelling an attack by an Anglo-French squadron in 1854. All subsequent years, the soldiers ensured the security of the country’s northeastern borders.

For exemplary performance of military duty, many servicemen of the association were awarded state and departmental awards. During the war and post-war years, 51 servicemen were awarded the title of Hero of the Soviet Union and Hero of Russia.
