Camp Ravenna under consideration for missile-defense site


NEWTON FALLS

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Avon, announced that Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center is one of four sites in the country the Department of Defense is considering as a missile-defense site.

The Ohio National Guard reported that Camp Ravenna is one of four military installations that will have an Environmental Impact Statement, which is expected to take about two years. Before undertaking an EIS for a potential additional missile-defense site, the department has completed an extensive evaluation of sites that originally were announced for consideration in September 2013, a Guard spokesman said.

Other sites selected for an EIS are Fort Custer, Mich.; Fort Drum, N.Y.; and the Portsmouth Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape Training Area, near Rangeley, Maine.
