Military Bases are Interesting

The Watervliet Arsenal  is an arsenal of the United States Army located in Watervliet, New York, on the west bank of the Hudson River. It is the oldest continuously active arsenal in the United States, and today produces much of the artillery for the army, as well as gun tubes for cannons, mortars, and tanks. It has been a National Historic Landmark since 1966.
The arsenal was founded in 1813 to support the War of 1812, and was designated as the Watervliet Arsenal in 1817. It occupies 142 acres of land.

Anniston Army Depot (ANAD) is a major United States Army facility fulfilling various depot operations. The depot is located in Bynum, Alabama.
The depot employs over 5,000 people and covers 25 acres.
ANAD is the only depot capable of performing maintenance on heavy-tracked combat vehicles and their components.

We have visited many in our travels and have been to these two recently.
