Smile tg 608 /Ft. Lee.. more

Ft. Lee has been a DOD trs for a couple of years now and talkgroups available seem to be unlimited. My guess is a certain block of number talkgroup ranges were assigned to training, facilities, techs, management, Security and FD. You don't know until a new talkgroup number pops up and somebody starts talking.

In regard to the urban village, a basic stripped version of the sophisticated urban village/town complex built at Ft. A. P. Hill for urban fighting training has been constructed in one of the large land training areas which comprise Ft. Lee. It provides a local environment for various training scenarios involving convoy ambushes, urban fighting, providing medical aid to wounded soldiers, coordinating with Medevac helicopters to land and remove the wounded, etc., etc.

Remember Ft. Lee is an support installation with many non-combat specialty trained soldiers in advanced training. The vehicles they mostly use are humvees and heavy duty open bed trucks with roof top mounted machine guns. By having such a training area environment available locally, monies are saved. Otherwise, the QM soldiers would have to be bussed to Ft. A. P. Hill tdy for such training

Ft. Lee recently has increased the number of support missions it provides which now include but are not limited to selected multi-services (Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard) i.e., Quartermster School, Transporation School, Petroleum School, Parachute Rigger, Aircraft cargo packing, ALMC and other training missions. .

Since the 2005 BRAC commission among other impacts to Ft. Lee were two new service schools built on now what is called "North Ft. Lee" adjacent to the main post with a "flyover" vehicle connecting bridge. The Army Military Hardware museum, formally at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in MD., now will be at Ft. Lee. The tanks, etc. presently are "mothballed" awaiting display buildings construction. The WW2 German RR gun is so huge that its' display building literally will be built around the gun.

The Army Contracting Command formally at the Pentagon now is located in the building I worked in when a federal civil service employee.

Since 2005 approximately $2 billion has been spent in facilities upgrades, i.e., new enlisted and officer housings and other infrastructure spending and the tri-cities area has seen a population increase of several thousand permanent civilians and active duty/retired military..

I was joking, but thank you for the information I knew nothing about. Seems like a great idea especially with all that is going on in the world!

Thanks again.

Frank.

I knew what you meant and I would have thought the same thing if I wasn't aware of the huge impact the BRAC 2005 have had on Ft. Lee and the area. For the past 7-8 years there has been non-stop construction. Old WW2 buildings were demolished and new ones built. New buildings were constructed in previously underdeveloped installation areas.

Any map of Ft. Lee anyone has, except the Ft. Lee Post Engineers, is outdated. Unless a Google or Bing satellite has made a mapping pass over Ft. Lee in the past few months, they are outdated.

Sure, send me a PM. If it pertains to the W4UVV Va. Frequency Directory, yes, it continues to be offered with FCC a/c/d info updated weekly or earlier if I monitor something of interest such as a new low power surveillance frequency an area radio system recently has added.
