|Here is what those Navy 2000 pound shells look like before it reaches its destination. Don't think the Navy has ships that fire shells this big anymore.|
We toured some of the area including Ft Monmouth, about 20 miles away. It is scheduled to close soon under the last BRAC. The PX was closing a few days after we were there. The Commissary looked like it might be staying open; there was not one on NWS Earle.
We left there Fri AM at 0800 for Newport RI about 240 miles away through NY City. Got off to a bad start when I turned south on a limited access highway immediately outside the base. It took an hour and 20 miles of wondering thru the small towns around the base to get back on the road in the right direction.
