  1. Very cool. I worked inside the 'Rock' from 1975 to 1977. The security center wasnt built then, we just parked our cars and walked up to the Portal A and stood waiting for the bus...LOL

  2. I was stationed at Fort Ritchie and worked out at the site 1964 - 1966. Looking at the pictures it sure has changed on the outside. It was good duty with good people. I felt so sad when they closed Fort Ritchie, visited it a few years ago and it was all run down,

  4. I was stationed at Site R and worked there as a cryptographer from 1959 to 1961 and still remember some of the great men and women that I worked communications with, including the memory of winding punched paper tape around your hand, in the same way you would wind up clothes line with your arm. I was appalled to learn of the ignominious exit for Fort Ritchie, and hope the Site never suffers the same fate.
    I might add in the almost two years that I lived and worked in in and around the Site, I never heard the phrase Raven Rock, once!

  5. I was at Ft Ritchie from 96 till closing, and worked Site R as an MP.(95B back then) It was my first duty station, and I have to say it was the best one, strange as it may seem. I too was heart broken knowing Ft Ritchie shut down, and seeing her off was an honor, and serving there was a privilege. Site R was really cool, and I made lifelong friends there. I'd go back in a heart beat.
