I appreciate your advice and try to use paragraphs. My notebook got hit with a virus so bad earlier this year that I had to send it back to TOSHIBA to be repaired. It refuses to do paragraphs since. BTW I won't bother you folks any more since I have actually caused pain. I'll delete and move on..Have a good life...DAVE

Thank you, David. It looks quite readable to me! I keep telling a friend of mine...don't use certain words on the phone, the computers that do this are looking for key words. What she says might not have anything to do with what they're really looking for, but I'd rather that our phone calls not catch anyone's attention.

Sorry. I didn't mean to come across as you bothering me. You weren't.

Just like the Lackland Annex nothing too serious.
That's exactly what they want you to believe.

Default camp Stanley

Seems everyone has everything wrong about this facility. Yes Camp Stanley is an Army ammunition facility. But it is not run by an Ordnance Officer, but rather an Engineer Corp Officer, which is strange in the ammo community to happen. But not so for other facilities that have a connection with the CIA. camp Stanley is a ammunition/munition manufacture facility, making special items for the CIA. This site is also the main explosive storage area for the CIA. Efforts to move some of or all of this ammunition to Camp Perry to Harvey Point Defense Testing Activity have not been successful, as ech of thise sites have storage limitations.

Camp Stanley and the CIA go back as far as the Viet Nam war. when they made special fuzes to go into CHICOM mortars, under the code name Eldest Son. Every so often an explosive item will turn up that the right person can trace it back to Camp Stanley.

Camp Stanley has not done much work in the chem/bio arena - you can pretty much tell that by looking at the satellite aerial photos that are on the web. No sign of HVAC, filtrations systems, vent hoods, etc can be seen. Doesn't mean they couldn't have done some small scale work on bullets etc, but there is no way to prove that. The main chemical problem comes from the WW I era when the site was Camp Funston and 75mm chemical rounds were trained with there and camp Bullis.

Stanley remains an active CIA facility.

The paper goes on to explain that it "has agreed to the agency's request not to name the facility or describe its location more precisely."

Last time I checked the world map, Korea was not part of SW USA, LOL. What I find kinda interesting TRN, I don't know if you remember a lady I had working for me named Cindy. She was my bookkeeper. She worked at Camp Stanley during WWII. About 10 years ago, we decided that maybe she could tour the areas where she had worked. NO DICE! They were just about upset over the fact that she even asked. We both thought it pretty weird at the time. I guess I know now why they said NO!
If you haven't been by the NSA on Military between Potranco and 410, that place is almost scary. Looks more like a prison than anything. Another interesting thing about that location is the 2 buildings to the Potranco side, one of them monitors ALL internet traffic including this post. Think big brother isn't watching everybody? Think again.
Are those NSA buildings going to be replaced by the giant new NSA data center in Bluffdale, Utah?

Sorry, but a bug in my OS will not let me set paragraphs. I figure it is better to post one big paragraph than not say anything at all.
I was temporarily stationed at Camp Bullis in the early 70s for AZR training. That is Combat Prep for the USAF Security Forces headed to combat zones. I also had Heavy Weapons Training on the 90 mm. Recoiless Rifle there too.
At the time Camp Stanley was known as an almost defunct warehouse system for small arms ammunition.

I thought this article in the New York Times about Camp Stanley's mission would be interesting to all of you:
