    sierra vista is a bad place for BG's to visit. open carry, and everyone here is into 2 things: guns and bikes. that's before even getting to the post.

    I was TDY to Ft Huachuca A LOT in 1997, 1998, 1999...and remember reading in the local newspaper an announcement put out by the local sherriff that read something to the effect of "Please do not shoot the illegals...if you see them, contact the Cochise County sherriff/INS/Border Patrol at ###-###-####"

    Quite a few Iraqi officers have deserted their military training in the US and are not accounted for. Two quit half way though their training at Ft. Huachuca and disappeared. Could there be a connection between some of these missing Iraqis and the planned attack on Ft. Huachuca?

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/apps/...112060084/1001

    "He said two Iraqi officers fled in the middle of their training from Fort Huachuca, Ariz., the nation's largest intelligence training facility. One officer disappeared from Fort Benning, Ga., where he was participating in combat arms training.

    Another Iraqi officer who was studying medical training left Fort Sam Houston and the last two Iraqi officers fled the Army's defense language training school at Lackland Air Force Base — both those bases are in San Antonio."

    simple solution to all of huachuca's un invited guest problems. move an artillery training unit to the southern end of the post and let the newbie fisters practice on moving targets.if the mexican gov't complains threaten them with a counter attack if their military personell keep helping the cartels get into the country(wich is technically an act of war.)

    The is a portion in a Clancy novel where the drug smugglers help Islamic gunmen to enter the country, in a very similar way to what the above story mentions. The T's end up attacking a shopping mall, not a military base.....

    Curious...the articles information would clearly be highly classified...and if in fact true...why release this information to the public? And if in fact false...what was the purpose of the release?

    When it happened it was classified, I was working with the SP's at Luke at the time and we were briefed about it., and then told it was classified information. The point of releasing this information is to show th e public in general, and the population in AZ that we are doing something about domestic terrorist threats and the border/illegal immigration problem.

    Yep, we were never issued live ammo for guard duty or anything else except the range. I did training at Ft. Huachuca in the '70's, and we used to go out off-duty, drink a few beers, and watch the illegals walking across the post from Mexico!

    Right. The only ones are the MPs - because while units have their weapons in a arms room, they have 0 rounds to use in any of them. And you can't carry on post, as it is a federal facuility. If you have a weapon you have to make arrangements in advance to go shoot at a rod and gun club or you have to turn it in, a huge hasstle. Rediculous that soldiers can't carry IMO. They do it daily overseas, but even officers and NCOs don't get the right to.

    You know I can see the logic in it, that many people most of which are not real gun familiar and are not use to the daily handling of firearms there could be a number of ND's every year.
    That and a lot of military people tend to go let of steam with a lot of booze and then come back to barracks not a good combination.
