ICBM site in Va?
Being very bored before class today I found this link:
I feel compelled to warn others that most of the blurbs on the
page are not coldwar related and most of the pictures that acompany
the blurbs look very faked. I guess your typical UFO type site. That
being said there were a blurb that did catch my attention.
The blurb in question is the Tobacco Row ICBM silo. While the
silo picture looks suspect the picture of the signs does not. I have
not seen the red ``no pictures'' sign but I have seen the other ones
on the Fort A.P. Hill fence along Route 2 between Bowling Green and
Fredericksburg. I'm sure they are familar to other list members. The
only military/coldwar I site I know of is the former Air Force radar
site (Blue Texas was the name I think) on Apple Orchard Mountain in
Bedford County. That installation has since been torn and a plot of
land retained for use by the FAA for the Bedford ARSR. The closest
place of interest to the silo would be the Tobacco Row Mountain
antenna farm with a massive partialy active AT&T microwave
installation at its peak.
I apologize if the ICBM thing is a known or obvious fake. The
picture of the signs could be from anyway so I take with a grain of
salt but figured it was worth seeing if others knew about it. Thanks.
