Ohio In Running For Missile Site

Sep 13, 2013

The Pentagon says a facility in Ohio is among five places being considered for an anti-ballistic missile launch site.

Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center is a site under consideration for a Ground-based Midcourse Interceptor East Coast location. The others are Vermont's Camp Ethan Allen; Portsmouth Training Area in Maine; Fort Custer in Michigan and Fort Drum in New York. No decision has been made to deploy the system, but the Pentagon is required to conduct a study of possible East Coast locations. Part of that study will be to identify the possible locations that would be looked at more.
