This was a real surprise to show up for what I thought would be going back in time for an era where I was in the military. Instead, the place is off limits, and says by way of barbed wire and signs it is a hazardous area, so not enter. Many of the barracks and buildings have been torn down now, but they left the boilers and chimneys. It looks like an old Roman ruin, of pillars standing as the past history-huh-kind of US style. They once had 76,000 acres of land and the fort held over 30,000+ troops in WWII and a build up and then again in Korean War. It also held German prisoners in WWII and Vietnamese in transition to US after that one fiasco ended. Later Cubans even got a shot at living here. Nation Guard has 66,000 acres yet for practice, and 7,000 acres went to start development of 20,00 homes over future years.
