Praise the Lord! and pass the Ammunition.....

On a recent photo excursion with Scott Mecum and his wife, Lil Nick and I were treated to a unique sight. A series of WW 2 ammunition bunkers sitting on land near Amboy.  These sturdy survivors are easily seen from the road and are part of the Green River arsenal complex built in 1942. It was decommissioned in 1945.

They were operated by the Stewart-Warner corp. which produced rocket propelled ammunition for bazooka's. As well as Artillery shells, Naval shells, bombs, Rifle Grenades, fuses and rockets for use during the war.  It should be noted that these sit on private land. ALWAYS get the land owners permission before stopping to take a photograph.
