My house pretty much backs to this Coast Guard Station and it is not a new facility by any means (in regards to the 'under construction' post). I
moved into my current house in 1994 and have lived here since. The ‘octagon’ has been here at least that long. When I was about 10, my dad and I
would take our dogs on long walks back in Huntley Meadows and we would walk completely around the facility. However, at many, seemingly sporadic times
throughout the year, they would have guards posted at every tower with telescoping binoculars. Because I was young, I do not remember what type of
uniform they were wearing. Also I remember that whenever I would walk back there, there would always be either a full line of fully blacked out
Suburban type vehicles, or a full line of beige Crown Victorias or possibly Mercurys. Anyhow, through personal experience, word or mouth, and an
inside source, I know a hell of a lot about this facility.
Rumors: Because I am so close in proximity to this location, many rumors go around about this facility but it is not as much of a 'hot topic' as you
would think. First; Just like the originator of this thread assumed, the base is rumored to be a high security, high profile prison. I do not know if
it is, but this would be a great explanation to the the two 20 foot fences capped with razor wire, the constant presence of security and the isolation
of the 'octagon' facility behind the main Coast Guard Station. Second; The 'octagon' facility is rumored to be a top secret laboratory. I do not
know why, some people just say this. Third, it is rumored that Saddam Hussein was kept here prior to his trial, while the States held him in custody.
Last, people in the area think that it is just part of the Coast Guard Facility like a gym. I can confirm that this is not the case.
I know people who work at this Coast Guard facility and have asked them many questions about this base. For protection purposes, assume they know
nothing and I cannot say what they said directly in order to protect them. What I can do, is make a list of things that are confirmed.
The ‘octagon’ is not part of the Coast Guard facility. It is accessed through the main gate, just like any other part of the base. The vehicles
that move too and from the ‘octagon’ are usually blacked out and either only hold identification up to the blacked out window, or call ahead and
say how many vehicles will be in the procession and roll through the main gate without slowing. The ‘octagon’s’ computer network is not part of
the Coast Guard’s network. I am not sure what clearance you need for this facility, but it is higher than a top-secret clearance. No one in the
Coast Guard part of the facility knows what this is but they all have their assumptions. Everyone who sees how many cars go back to that facility,
know that there is no way that the ‘octagon’ can be only above ground. One of the widely agreed upon theories at the Coast Guard Station is that
the above ground part of the ‘octagon’ is only an entrance and there is a huge facility underground.
Anyhow I personally think that the ‘octagon’ is not a real threat to anyone that lives by it and it is not that big of a deal. It is probably a
witness protection program and/or a high profile detention center designed to hold only a few high profile individuals. I am thinking about gathering
more information on my own and from other sources so that conclusions drawn about the ‘octagon’ will be solid.
Lastly, I would like to ask if there is any interest in me taking video of the facility from the ground?
Thanks, and I hope that this information was helpful.
