Dam it I hate this but I have to do it everything changes I guess. I lived a lie for the two and a half
years I was stationed at NPTU West Milton. I guess that next I will find out that I didn't live at 310 cook
road in Galway which is about 10 miles from from the unit. I should have known there was something
wrong when I was there two years ago and they had closed off the road into the site and had a big sign
there that said K.A.P.L. (Knowles Atomic Power Laboratory). I guess they changed the name to Ballston Spa because nobody has ever heard of West Milton except locals. Ballston is about 20 miles from the site.
the site is actually located in West Milton.
YOU WERE RIGHT FORKLIFT!!

Holy smokes. Next thing you know you will say that the Navy really wasn't running nuke subs up the Hudson and then to the site thru a tunnel connecting the two for refueling? One cold and foggy night some low life MM used a wolf howl tape in an electronic crow call to tantalize the senses of those folks walking through the dark parking lot. Of course we were more sophisticated, we resided in the Springs near Skidmore. Even had a mineral spring right in our back yard. Accommodations were so high class, we were not even required to move out for the Harness season. Even had a garage for the bike. As I pass through on my yearly trip North, I often think about stopping and seeing what is still around. One of these days I might do it.
Walt,
Had I done everything right throughout my life, the World wouldn't have noticed.

I drove by MINSY back in '74, I think.  Drove to the housing area to see if the housing we lived in on Hemlock street was still there and found nothing left except some asphalt streets with weeds growing in them.  It was a weird experience.  Didn't attempt to go on base as I was in a hurry and I had an Army military ID at the time.

Emmit you chewed on me for using "site" then you used the word to describe the same place.
Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory,
Kenneth A. Kesselring Site address is Ballston Spa. If you do not like it call the Navy and tell them they have it wrong. You are sounding like Dex complaining about submarine base no longer being listed as New London.

no forklift I chewed on you for using the word prototype when referring to the site. Walt i spent many a good time in the lower bar of the Rip Van Damn with the skidmore girls and drank lots of beer at the Kaydyross (sp) Inn and Johns bar. We had to do something with the twelve hours we had off until the next shift.
