Made a delivery to Camp Minden yesterday. Unfortunately I was not in the big delivery truck, but a regular size SUV, as it was a small delivery. If I
had been in the big truck my pictures would have been much more interesting, as the road from the freight gate to the main part of the base leads you
by the trains, and areas I believe to be closer to the explosion.
I'm posting some pics, although none are of the "bunker site"... I was only allowed to enter the main gate, go to a 2nd security station, obtain a
temporary pass, proceed with the delivery, return to security station to return the pass, then exit the facility. I did speak to an employee at my
delivery point, who I will refer to as "X".
I'm a little nervous about posting this because I'm not sure how sensitive any of this is...
From Interstate 20 -
From HWY 80 about to arrive at main gate -
From main gate -
Once inside, the building on the right I believe to be some type of dormitory -
X happened to be working the night it happened. X showed me the pictures that fell from the wall when it happened, and a large wooden door, like the
kind that opens on a bar to let the employees enter the bar area. The door was propped up against the wall, in the open position. When the explosion
happened, the door slammed down on the bar, cutting through an electric cord that was plugged into a machine used for warming food. The force of the
door nearly snapped the thick cord in half.
Needless to say X was very shocked and scared when they felt and heard the blast. An interesting comment was that X stated the blast came from the
freight gate area, which doesn't make sense, as there are no bunkers there. As soon as X experienced the blast, they went outside. X's description
is as follows as to what they saw in the sky - "It was like a finale of a large, city-sponsored fireworks show. I saw a large fireball in the air,
and streamers of fire raining down in the forest, like chunks of material that were still on fire." X also noted that the fireball was in the
direction of the freight gate, and was in the sky, not coming from the ground. X went back inside, and called a family member. Family member had a
base pass, and is a reserve fire-fighter. Family member told X to shut the place down, and come home (home is off-base). Family member and a friend
went on base shortly after, looking for the blast area, but were unable to find any fire or evidence of blast in the woods. X felt this was strange,
due to the fire-fighter experience.
X also saw a huge smoke cloud in the sky when they went back outside after calling family member.
X brought up the strangeness of people in Shreveport/Minden and surrounding areas reporting a meteor type event shortly before the explosion, but
local media totally going for the "bunker explosion" theory a day or two later, abandoning all evidence of meteor type event. I asked X about
supposed black suburbans seen on base in the following days, but they didn't see any activity regarding this and were not questioned by anyone
concerning the event.
X also stated they almost made some conspiratorial comments on the KTBS news site, concerning the meteor type event cover-up, but thought better of
it, since they are a government employee.....
The building with the vehicles is the 2nd security station, behind that is a church (see the steeple), behind that (but not pictured) is one of the
bunkers....The bunker "roof" stands about 12 feet high and is covered with grass/dirt, like a buried building.
*Hope you enjoyed.
