I'm moving you to Logistics with Thorne. You're gonna help convert a college in the Cascades to a forward operating base over the next 12 months, battle-ready for the Frontliners. All top CRM commanders will convene a summit there in one year to open the base. You and Thorne will be project leads on the conversion team. This is you getting in. This is the start of your path to the higher echelons of power.

Cascadia Forward Operating Base is a location that appears in AMC's The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live. It is a college in the Cascades that was converted into a forward operating base for the Civic Republic Military most likely near Portland, Oregon.


Nothing is known about this location prior to the apocalypse except that it used to be a college along the Cascade Mountain Range.


Following the outbreak, the college was abandoned and fell into ruins, becoming overgrown with at least a few walkers wandering around.

Season 1[]


Following Rick Grimes' fifth failed escape attempt, Lieutenant Colonel Donald Okafor places him and Pearl Thorne in charge of transforming the old college into a forward operating base for the Frontliners. Okafor explains that over the course of 12 months, the college will be turned into a base for the Frontliners and, once it's done, a summit of Major General Beale and the entire CRM leadership will be held to officially open it. Okafor tells Rick that this is the beginning of his path to the higher echelons of power in the CRM, to learning the CRM's secrets and helping Okafor with his plan to change the organization from the inside.

Rick and Thorne clear the location of walkers and, over the course of the next year, transform it from a ruined college into a fully functional CRM base.


Cascadia Forward Operating Base will appear in this episode.


A dying Jadis reveals that her dossier on Alexandria is located in her room at Cascadia Base. Rather than continuing their journey home, Rick and Michonne steal a CRM helicopter from a jump point at Yellowstone National Park to fly back to Cascadia Base, intending to find and destroy the file while Rick infiltrates the CRM to get the Echelon Briefing so they can stop the CRM's plans once and for all. Jadis also mentions that the opening summit for the base has yet to happen but is soon.
