Looking back, I am really regretting not stopping to take a picture or some video with my droid. At the time, it occurred to me that it might be a good idea. But I was too scared that somebody would see me and come arrest me for videotaping them or something. This is not a very populated area so if I stopped it would be pretty obvious I was there. I don't know if it's legal to video them or not, but I didn't want to be the one to find out lol.
I have heard stories from a co-worker who lives in Banner County who had a flat tire near this installation. She told me that they had a flat and were looking for some help to get it jacked up so they could put a spare on. They walked up to a humvee near this place and the soldiers got out of the vehicle to greet them with weapons drawn. Apparently the soldiers were polite, but ordered them to get back and return to their vehicle and told them that they wouldn't be able to help. Something tells me whatever they were doing this morning they weren't messing around.

Are you sure only Air Force and Navy personnel deal with nuclear weapons? I'm pretty sure there are some-ex military contractors, that have the proper clearances, that would beg to differ. Besides that, they don't need to be in the silo to do some types of maintnance work.
ON a side note....doesn't the Department of Energy have something to do with nuclear weapons as well? Or is that just power plants? They are a civilian organization.....edit on 4-1-2012 by JJRichey because: DOE
