There is another thread inquireing about Ft Knox, yes. But again I have no problem handleing questions on the place. Yes gold has been moved from the
Knox Vault, no it is not empty. The military channel had an exlisive special onthe Gold Vault, and was even allowed a sneak peak (literally), of
inside the inner vault, but only a little bit, as the door was not opened all the way for security reasons.
The purpose of the base over all, is to train the 19 series MOS of the US Army, Kilos and Deltas. Back when I went there during my first enlistment we
called the training OSUT (One Station Unit Training). Both Scouts/19D and Tankers 19/k under gone OSUT, now in addition in keeping witht he mobility
tradition of Cavalry and Armor, Strikers are now going to be trained there as well.
Changes in the cycle is now 19s are no longer under going OSUT, that changed shortly after my second tour through Knox, with my second enlistment.
Evidently they will now go through Basic at the Infantry training bases and then attend AIT in Knox for theior "Scout skills".
Also "what could really be i(n) Fort Knox besides gold", is the only MOUT Facility in the US and Army for that matter, where Armored vehicles can
train (ie destroy structures), in an urban enviornment. Known as MOUT Zussman, the facilty is a small village on it's own, and even impressed a
General with it's high tech simulated sounds, and smells along with video cameras for all angles within rooms and areas around buildings.
