Camp Ravenna under consideration for missile-defense site

Published: Sun, February 2, 2014 @ 6:36 a.m.


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.

Maybe all the DFAS workers from Liberty can help do all the accounting for the project! Oh, wait, there is no DFAS center in Liberty, that was just a lie.......

Why do people for this nonsense?

There is not going to be a missile defense site built in Ravenna.

They are all pretty good sites but I think Ravenna would be the best of all of them.

Oh Boy, a likely enemy target close to home.

In this day and age, it really doesn't make any difference where it is located.

If we had incoming ICBMs the game would be over for all of us.

Joe- although it would be something the enemy would want to target, by definition the target would be stopping the missiles sent to take it out. No other country in the world can render another countries military assets useless in a short period of time like we can. No country can pull a "shock and awe" on us. Now terrorists, who target civilians and other non-military targets... well that's a different story. Just gotta be alert. Military sites are good for the local economy and good for defense of the local area. Utica is right, we need the influx of technology. When I got back from Offutt in the early 80's I was amazed (and disheartened) to find zero computer related jobs in or near ytown. I had just left Omaha (aka cow-town in those days) and they were light years ahead of this area.
