Well as it was showing footage of a C-17, I noticed ahead of it was seemed to me looked ALOT like Groom Lake. NOT S-4, but Groom Lake. Is Area 51
and Nellis the same thing or are they just so close together that I am confusing myself ?

Good Question! No, Area 51 is NOT Nellis. I can see where the confusion is coming from though. Maybe this wil help:
In Nevada, there is a netword of military facilities that cover the center of the state. These bases and test ranges include: Nellis Air Force Base,
Groom Lake, S-4, Tonapah Test Range, the DOE Nuclear Test Site, Area 19, a bombing range for Red Flag, and other military areas. All of these military
areas are protected within one big security perimiter that is guarded by MP's, Civilain Securty Officers and other security systems. This outer
security perimiter that encloses ALL of the Military and Defense Facilities in central Nevada is what people are talking about when they say: Nellis
Air Force Range Complex, often simpally called Nellis by military personnel!
Nellis is Not Groom Lake, but Groom Lake is part of Nellis! Hope that makes some sense!
