Function: NSA Facility
Notes: (I lost the name of who sent me this..let me know..)
"Having spent the better part of my life there I can assure you of only one thing, it is THE communications command central for the entire US Army (and rumored to be for the entire US forces) No phone call, two way radio transmission, satellite transmission, fax, etc., within the Army goes undocumented and un "cleared" by this facility. It is VERY high on the "first to be hit in a nuclear war" list, (as supposedly most communications with the Army are actually routed though there) thus all the missile silos that were (not really) deactivated around Tucson, some 75 miles to the NW".
"As for any underground activity, I have no idea, but I do know this, they also do "radar testing" there. They put "planes" on a tower and fire a radar at them to "get a reading"(?) from a HUGE (I'd say 10 story) microwave radar dish. (it was visible from the highway several miles away). The whole facility sat out in the middle of a several hundred (or possibly thousands) acre field, oddly devoid of most all naturally occurring groundcover, bushes and trees for the area except for wild grass, and even that was very seldom green. HMMMM. My Dad used to work the crane lifting these "planes" onto the tower, a duty they only allowed each person to do for a few weeks and then only one or two rotations in a lifetime - can you say radioactive sickness? By the way, he recently went though his THIRD fight with cancer in 8 years). He had to have the highest level clearance ever given to any civilian in his branch of the civil service. He said many times these "planes" were under tarps, (which were never lifted while he was present) and didn't have any shape he recognized as an airplane at all, but when they did put an actual plane up there, they were usually older and even many times, out of service models. Now why would they need radar info on those? Can you say smokescreen?
I was constantly amazed how many times my friends and I would go out 4-wheeling MILES in the opposite direction of the Fort, and would run into locked gates with "No Entrance, Govt Property" signs on them! Needless to say, the Govt owned much of the land around the Sierra Vista/Ft Huachuca area.
Just thought you'd like to know."

3. Munds Park, Arizona highway rest stop (reported by Dumpgoddess. Verified by Sid and also Becky, who says she was almost arrested asking what the hell they were doing there when they were building this thing)
Dumpgoddess told me she used to work at a highway rest area known as Munds Park. One day some military trucks and men pulled in and pretty much said OK, thanks for working here, we're closing the place, Buh-bye!" They spent years expanding the site and then left. The rest stop is still closed to any traffic and the entrance and exit road to it from the highway have been ripped up. Another person I know in that area said there are unmarked military trucks and vehicles parked in the back now and the place "is huge" compared to what it was, and looks quite deserted in spite of the construction.
"I live 20 miles out of Flagstaff AZ. .There is a rest area 1/2 mile away. When the government was building this rest area it took almost 3 1/2yrs to complete, and there were tall fences with dark canvas-like tarps all the way around the area so no one could see what was going on .There were also big army looking trucks pulling in and out all night, every night. Everyone in Munds Park could hear them coming and going. Now the govt. is closing the rest area for good. I'm told the fences will be put back up. I would bet my life on the fact that there is something under this rest area. You see I worked at Christensen (name of rest area) up untill a week ago.
5. Sedona, Arizona

Notes: Located under the Enchantment Resort in Boynton Canyon. There have been many reports by people in recent years of "increased military presence and activity" in the area. A local resident, Deana, told me her and her husband are thinking of moving because it's gotten so intrusive. Sedona is felt to be a very spiritual area and was (is) a cultural and holy area for Native Americans and is stunningly gorgeous.

Tunnels to: Denver proper, Colorado and Rocky Mountain "safehousing", Colorado Springs, Colorado (Cheyenne Mtn.), Riverton, Wyoming Notes: Constructed in 1995, the government and politicians were hell bent on building this airport in spite of it ending up vastly overbudget. Charges of corruption, constant construction company changes, and mass firings of teams once they had built a section of their work was reported so that no "one" group had any idea what the blueprint of the airport was. Not only did locals not want this airport built nor was it needed, but everything was done to make sure it was, period. Masonic symbols and bizarre artwork of dead babies, burning cities and women in coffins comprise an extensive mural as well as a time capsule - none of which is featured in the airport's web site section detailing the unique artwork throughout the building. DIA is reported to serve as a cover for the vast underground facilities that were built there. There are reports of electronic/magnetic vibrations which make some people sick and cause headaches in others. There are acres of fenced-in areas which have barbed wire pointing into the area as if to keep things in, and small concrete stacks that resemble mini-cooling towers rise out of the acres of nowhere to apparently vent underground levels.

Edgewood Arsenal, Maryland (from Don)
Martins AFB, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland
Don wrote: I was just looking at your satellite photo of the chem trails over the East Coast (Maryland in particular), and I noticed a strange coincidence. I'm from Maryland and I noticed that the two streaks over the state seem to run next to major military installations. The more eastern of the two runs over Aberdeen Proving Ground, Edgewood Arsenal, and Martins AFB. The more western of the two runs near Ft. Meade. Aberdeen Proving Ground and Edgewood Arsenal seem to have a lot of strange or peculiar things about them as well. I live near both and often can hear the weapons testing. I know for a fact that there are large storages of chemical weapons at Edgewood. In high school, we had to do pressurization drills once a month where the entire school would pile into the gym and we would seal the gym and pressurize it to keep the gas out. There are sirens all over the community they test once a week (every Wed. at 4) that are to alert of potential chemical weapons leaks. There is constant military air traffic all over the area, and chemtrails are a regular occurrence (until I was about 18, I thought it was normal for contrails to stay for at least 6 hours!). These two bases are always heavily guarded and secured, even before 9/11. One of my friend's dad is an army chemist out there, and he is not allowed to even discuss what he does. The only way I knew that he was a chemist was because he is a doctor and the insignia on his uniform is from the chemical corps. He is very secretive and often disappears late at night to go to work, apparently at a moment's notice (he has two pagers, a govt. one and his regular one). Aberdeen Proving Grounds is the United States' largest military testing facility, and Edgewood Arsenal is it's largest store of arms. I could fill a book with the peculiarities of these two installations.
Area 51 - Groom Lake - Dreamland - Nellis Air Force Base
Area 51 was said to exist only in our imaginations until Russian satellite photos were leaked to US sources and it's amazing how you can get photos all over now of it, and even posters. It's also amazing how much they've been busy little bees building this base up.

Addendum: I have been told by many people (all military) that Area 51 isn't really where much is going on - or at least the whole "aliens/crashed saucers are there" mystique is a bit hyped because the area is able to be so secured. That illusion is "allowed" and encouraged to focus the energy of the "Conspiracy" people on it and divert snooping into the real hub of action elsewhere (most say Dulce).
The Air Force
recently managed to withdraw 3,972 acres of
public land from the surrounding desert and
absorbed it into the Groom Lake area, making it
prohibited to civilians and under military
protection. This was in answer to the
(government's) endless battle to keep people
from sitting on a ridge that was 10 miles away
with telescopic lenses "spying" on the goings-on
of the Area and trying to see what all the
massive paranoia was about. Double Dog dares,
Also, a bit bizarrely for a place where "nothing is going on", after the New York 9-11 attack, President Bush the Second issued a statement that would exempt this installation "from any Federal, State, Interstate, Local or hazardous waste laws that might require the disclosure of calcified information concerning that operating location to unauthorized persons...information concerning activities at the operating location near Groom Lake have been properly determined to be classified and disclosure would be harmful to national security. Continued protection of this information is in the paramount interest of the United States".

4. Henderson, Nevada - Naval Base
This one's interesting. I was in Henderson on May 3-4, 1988 on one of my Death Valley/Ghost Town/Photography/Screw the World jaunts. (I love Death Valley). I remembered it vividly because I just got tired of driving and happened to turn off for the night and there I was in Henderson. It was a sleepy, dusty town. I ended up in this strange hotel that seemed like part of an old 1940s horror movie, run by the nicest people you'd want to meet. I love stuff like that. They were so surprized to see a visitor they gave me the room for a few bucks. The next morning (May 4) I left and was about two hours from town, trying to get anything on the radio but static, when I heard a news report that there had been a terrible accident in Henderson and the "marshmallow factory" had blown up, killing several people and causing a massive fire. I couldn't believe it...I was just there! I just missed it. If I had been my usual Never In A Hurry self, I'd still be there. I saw the smoke not too long after, still driving; Henderson burning hours away.
Then I heard that what had in fact blown up was a government chemical/bomb plant . I was stunned. This sleepy little dusty town had a bomb plant? Huh? I couldn't find a thing online about the original lie that it was a marshmallow plant. I KNOW they said that - in fact I had called home a few hours after this happened to let them know I was OK because I had called the night before and they knew I's stayed there. I asked them, now - if they remembered me calling and this story? and they did. It made no sense at all to me. What also doesn't make sense is how 4,500 tons of ammonium perchlorate can be in the middle of a town and now it's surrounded by homes. In May, 1991 a huge release of chlorine occurred in Henderson - are we that expendable?
Brian sent me
".... Do you know anything about a NAVAL base out in the middle of the Nevada desert? I want to say Hawthorn, or Henderson, or something like that? About half way between LV and Reno. I was up that way a couple years ago helping out with tech inspection for <a popular auto race out there> while making the drive from Vegas to Reno, out in the middle of nowhere, is this damn NAVAL base! Wow, that's strange I think, so I go though the little town of the same name, and then I see a HUGE lake, also "in the middle of nowhere" and not really looking developed for "public use". What really weird is that the entire lake looks as if it could be only a few feet deep, VERY slightly angled shores (no steep inclines, like a boat ramp, except from the cliffs of the mountain it sits against) and actually could almost pass for simply a rain or run off"pond" if its acreage wasn't so big. Yet, out in the middle of this "shallow" lake (starting at the shore of the shallowest looking end), is an almost perfectly straight, dead centered, dead calm "strip" of water (you now the "still waters run deep" expression, its true). Coincidentally enough, this entire end of the lake (about 80% of the lake in fact) is posted,,,yep, you guessed it,, "OFF LIMITS" with the familiar red and white govt issue signs.
Well, the guy that was riding with me to Reno grew up in the Vegas area, and says the rumor is that the Naval base designs/builds super secret submarines, and the "trench" at the end of the lake is in fact the opening of a long underground water tunnel leading back to the base, so they can test the subs in the lake, and "supposedly" this is the deepest lake in the US, or maybe the world".

They don't even hide this one, and it's even a daily tourist "fun joke". The Underground vault was built to meet the needs of a Congress-in-hiding - in fact the hotel is a replica of the White House. The underground area has a chamber for the Senate, a chamber for the House and a massive hall for joint sessions. Although the hotel says it gives tours of the 112,000 square area daily, the installation still stands at the ready, its operators still working under cover at the hotel. The secrecy that has surrounded the site has shielded it both from public scrutiny and official reassessment.
From an article by Ted Gup: "House Speaker Thomas Foley, one of the very few in Congress who has been briefed on the Greenbrier facility, declined to comment for this article. But former speaker Thomas P. "Tip" O'Neill says the evacuation plan always seemed "far-fetched" to him. "I never mentioned it to anybody," O'Neill recalls. "But every time I went down to the Greenbrier -- and I went there half a dozen times -- I always used to look at the hill and say, 'Well, that's where we're supposed to live in the event something happens, and that's where we're going to do business, maybe under the tennis courts."

An interesting story:
Sudden Valley, WA - from Sid
"Sudden VAlley is a private community with it's own security, golf course, spa, rec. facilities, etc.
We moved there in 1992. <Wife> got a job as office manager at the resort headquarters. I got close to all the security force personnel...just cause that's what I do ;-) I had noticed that an airport was shown on the resort map right next to the road leading to Bellingham. I went past this area almost daily. All I saw was a dirt strip that looked like it had never been used.
I was curious!
A fellow employee and woman who became a good friend of my wife told us that the CIA had come to her when she was employed at the phone company and requested all the phone records of: Santo Trafficante, Jr. . WHAT? says I. Seems he was living openly in Sudden Valley under his own name and his children going to school in Bellingham. This was at the time the CIA and FBI were seeking him desperately for questioning concerning JFKs murder. No surprise that those diligent agencies were unable to locate the fugitive. I later found out from a friend who moved to Sudden Valley at it's inception that there were high ranking military folks, including a 4-star Ret. General and many Mafia types living there incognito".
"I never could get any answers out of the old timers about this airport. Most told me they were unaware of it's existence.
Well, what finally happened is that we decided to move in 1996 and we wanted to sell our classic Mercedes-Benz 280 SL before we left. Our neighbor across the street handled the sale of our home and told me that the owner of this airport that no one heard of collected classic Mercedes. He suggested that I go see him. How?, says I. Oh, there's a dirt road off the main highway that takes you to it. It's not marked.
Well, off I went. Sure enough, I found it and followed it about 1/2 mile into the forest. There before me was a fully equipped land and sea plane facility. There were approx. 20 aircraft parked there. I proceeded to the private home that was at the end of the road. Went up to the door and rang...then knocked...then tooted my horn. NADA! Someone was in one of the hangers pounding on a plane. I went there and shouted. No response, but the pounding stopped. I waited for maybe 10 minutes, then left. Next time I went by the dirt road, it was chained off with a big sign saying NO Trespassing. I was told that shortly after we moved, this whole airport and dock port was sold to a private citizen. Keep in mind the caliber of *some of the folks* that reside in SV and it's proximity to Canada. Perhaps 20 mins. away by air."
