My uncle, 90yrs old in dec, Served in WWII and I called him the other day to thank him for his service and he informed me he had served his basic training at Ft Chaffey 22 miles from me. I thought I would take a picture of the place for him for his birthday and then it hit me that maybe I will get arrested taking pictures of a military reservation.

It really pi**es me off that the terrorist in some 3rd world country might prevent me from giving my uncle some pleasure on his well deserved 90th birthday.

Ennis just go tell the commander what you are going to do and why. You wont have any problems, more then likely they will help you get information that would be interesting to your father. When my wife came back she ended up at FT Benning. I met her at Walter Reed and took her to Benning so she could process out. I was taking pictures of the Jump Towers, and Airborne training. An MP asked what I was doing and why. I told him it was for nostousia (sp) then we had a long talk about how much Benning has change or hasn't changed since 1966. I also got lots of pictures of the Infantry School, musuem, Sniper School Ranges etc (I also graduated from the Benning School for Boys Sniper School. Don't be sneaky and you wont have any problems.

Conceivably you could get in trouble if the President had designated that installation as "requiring protection". The applicable law would be Title 18, Part I, Chapter 37, Section 795. If you get permission of the base commander, though, you would be okay, and quite frankly, at most you would probably get investigated. The maximum penalty in the law is up to 1 yr prison. The terrorists, though, have nothing to do with it, this law has been on the books for decades.

When my grandfather was in the Cavalry he
was involved in high altitude flights with
balloons ( why the mounted Cavalry was
involved who knows ). My aunt went on a trip
and decided to see the Stratabowl where the
flights took place but i wasn't on any maps, no
road signs nada. Turns out too many people
were using the cliffs to jump so they basically
made it vanish in the name of public safety.

Give 'em a call and tell them what you want to do... maybe if you bring ID and stuff and can show that your uncle was there back when they will let you. If not, maybe they have a publicity packet that you can get with pictures in it. Not the same, but still would be neat for your uncle.
I agree with you about the dam terrorists, tho....
