Right now construction is wrapping up on "E-cavern," a bunker in Louisville, KY designed for secure data management.
That in itself is interesting, but the plot thickens when you read page 25 of this .pdf. It is refered to as the Underground Homeland Security
Tactical Operations Center.
Meanwhile, in western KY, the Wendell H Ford Training Center is quit interesting. (From globalsecurity.org)
Constructed on 8,500 acres of
reclaimed strip-mine land, the Training Center has complete year-round accommodations, to include barracks and quarters for nearly 500 troops, a
400-seat dining hall, a drill hall and modern learning center for computer simulator training. The site also feature live-fire ranges, hardened
bivouac sites, a controlled humidity storage complex, complete maintenance facilities for military equipment, engagement skills training center,
obstacle course and a 4,200 ft. grass runway.
In the early 1990s the Kentucky Guard developed a plan for the Western Kentucky Training Site's potential, not only for the National Guard's
training program, but for the Army, Marines, FEMA, law enforcement officers and even Boy Scouts. The facility is considered the National Training
Center of the east and the training center of choice.
I live about 20 miles from the training center. This part of KY has STRIP MINES everywhere, except for one underground mine. Its located right next
to the training center.
Here is a map of the DOCUMENTED underground mines, which can date back to the 1800's.
The training center is a mile or two south from the junction of highway 70 and 181.
I suspect massive underground military activity. Some days I can feel tremors, but there is no seismic activity nearby according to the USGS.
Here is a satelite view of the area:
#1: Location of Wendell H Ford Training Center entrance/guard house.
#2: Climate controlled storage buildings and maintence buildings. National Guard tanks and humvees are housed here.
#3: Railroad cars are parked parallel to highway 181, blocking view and vehicle access.
#4: Entrance to Kenamerica underground coal mine. This also has a guard shack and a gate controlling access.
The areas to the East and West of 181 are reclaimed strip mines. You can see faint gravel access roads. It is operated as a wildlife preserve by Ky
Conservation/ Fish and Game Officers.
I want to get to the bottom of this. How do I go about doing it?
