I was stationed here from June 1966 to June 1968 as MP Security. The 69th Ordnance Company (Site Pluto) was taken down and all of the armaments were removed in the late 1980's. The site has been converted to provide different functions and I believe falls under the control of the 559th Artillery group at the main base of Caserma Ederle in nearby Vicenza, Italy.

FYI when I was there 6/66 to 6/68 we supported eight firing sites. I was never told the locations. My job was inside the inner perimeter classified area. The Italian Army guarded the outer perimeter. We had no "Need to Know" where the other sites were located as they had their own security force.
