    A lot of those Armories serve entire regions. When I was Reserve and later Guard there where times I had to drive half way across the state just to go to drill.

I don't know what it is, but I would like to know if it is happening in other areas of the Country. Too much hardware for Podunk.

    Now this buildup looks like it began after June 2011. In August 2011 our Governor signed into law our new State Militia law so they may have a link with each other. Just don't know.

    There's an armory in Kansas City KS. that I've noticed has been filling up with vehicles also. When I was a kid, there were always several vehicles at this armory, but the past few years (10-15) they have been pretty bare. Last time I drove by it, there were about 2 dozen vehicles of different models, so yes, I suppose it could be said that that armory is stocking up.

    Anybody in NE Ohio? Is the Ravenna Arsenal still operating? I remember it was so big they had to worry about managing the deer inside.
    Don't know it's official designation.

    Ref Ravenna:

    Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center, formerly known as the Ravenna Training and Logistics Site and the Ravenna Army Ammunition Plant (RVAAP)[1] and commonly known as the Ravenna Arsenal, is an Ohio Army National Guard military base located between Ravenna and Newton Falls and adjacent to the village of Windham in the U.S. state of Ohio. Before its present status as a training facility for the Ohio National Guard, Camp Ravenna was a military ammunition production facility for the United States Army. As an arsenal, the facility was at peak operation during World War II and would serve as an ammunitions plant in various roles until 1992. Camp Ravenna remains an important part of the history and geography of Portage County, Ohio.[2] The facility occupies portions of Freedom, Windham, Charlestown, and Paris townships in Portage County, along with part of Braceville Township in Trumbull County.


    With history:


    Meanwhile, transfer of the facility was ultimately made to the Ohio National Guard, although there were several intermediate caretakers. In 1983, Firestone sold its contract to Physics International Company. Ten years later, Mason & Hangar-Silas Mason Company, Inc. assumed caretaker status.[1]

    The Ravenna Training and Logistics Site of the Ohio National Guard began as a tenant unit of the Army facility, which at that time was officially designated the Ravenna Army Ammunition Plant (RVAAP). 16,164 acres (65 km2) of the facility were included in the RTLS tenancy by May 16, 1999. On January 16, 2002, transfer of this land was made to the RTLS, and the RVAAP became a tenant site of the RTLS – essentially switching the roles of the two facilities.[1] The site is now known as Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center and currently occupies approximately 93% of the land originally covered by the RVAAP.[9]

    On September 11, 2007, the facility was opened to invited guests and members of the news media for a tour. At this tour, it was revealed that the RTLS would eventually encompass the 21,500 acres (87 km2) formerly known as the Ravenna Arsenal. At that time, only 1,000 acres (4.0 km2) remained under RVAAP control.[10]

    Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the fear has gone there will be nothing....only I will remain"

    I like the way you think/prepare. Another poster told me the other day not to worry. I'm not worried just curious. I'll be worried if I go by and the Armory has been emptied out.

    M-O-O-N, that spells opportunity. Don't want to be caught flat-footed when the Trashcan Man goes rolling.
