    The first site you mentioned,lists both Camp Stanley and Camp Bullis north of San Antonio.I don't know what goes on at Camp Stanley, but Camp Bullis is definetly in use.In fact, not to long ago in the paper,there was an article about the Army complaining that all the lights from all the development of homes, etc. around there is starting to mess with their night training excercises. The developers keep building closer and closer to the base.
    Praise the Lord for endangered species, cause they may cause a halt to developement close to the base.
    I'm sure some of these birds and other creatures also live on the base due to all the open land and trees etc. there,and I guess more may move onto the base to escape the developers.
    Out near Barbarosa,near New Braunfels,Tx there was an auxilary air field, long gone.And there is also one near Seguin, on US HWY 90 ,that is an auxliary field for Randolph.

    Default Malabar, Florida abandoned (?) Navy airfield

    I was planning to check this out sometime early next year, but recently some new information was added to the page, making me really re-think going there

    Default Forts,camps and airfields

    The NORTH AMERICAN FORTS site is great.I just recently e mailed Phil Payette to check out the LDS Church news article in Nov.8 about work on the reconstruction of Bluff Fort in SE Utah.The brothers that run the site are great guys and their pictures on some key installations are a real assest.
    The airfileds-freeman site is my fav.It revealed the facts about the ghost base that had fascinated me for decades-Walker Army airfiled in the middle of Kansas,I could see huge hangers way off to the N of the freeway and never could take the time to explore.When I first noticed the place in the late 60's there were four bomber hangers,now down to two.

    It is a shame that ALL signs of the massive amount of bldgs from the WWII era were wiped off the face of the earth at Fts.Washington AND Hunt.

    That looks like a great place to explore, too bad someone chased you off the property. Would have loved to see more of the place.
