I was a guard there as a Marine in 1969. Manned a tower outside above the excersise yard. Very interesting duty but couldn't wait to get a new duty station. I would love to go back and look it over after all these years but don't know if it's at all possible to do that.

For a closed place, there sure are a lot of cars there.
I recently read a novel which used this as one the settings for a mystery.
Until then, I'd never heard of it.
