Wędrzyn has for many years been a base used by various armies. Initially German, and from the end of World War II, Russian, and since the fall of Communism, Polish. Today it is an army base for tank and mechanized regiments, and a training ground used by various NATO forces, including American and British forces. Almost all of the residents of Wedrzyn work in some way in the large Polish army base and military training area, which covers the whole area.
