Surprises from the government
Posted by G.A. Matiasz on July 10, 2007
So, I went to the PO Box today, and had a rather large envelope from the Department of the Army. Seems that a parcel of high desert land near Victorville that my parents purchased in the 1960s, and which I inherited after they died, “may be located on the former Victorville PBR no. 3 Target Area and Buffer Zone.” They want my permission to enter the property and search for unexploded munitions.
Of course, I intend to give them my permission. If I had the energy and outrage however, I’d surely like to find out how the fuck my parents purchased land in a military weapons testing range. Incredible.
PS — Here’s a link to a Sacramento Bee database of California’s former defense sites.
