Same range that was closed for awhile after an F-16 strafed a local public school by mistake:

As with miliary active ID I've been going to Warren Grove for well over 55 years, to note another Range in South was just across from the Millville Airport the First Defense Airbase in the U.S. Warren Grove Range is surrounded by State of New Jersey Fish and Game WMA open for hunting during season. Note that the signs in this area let you know live weapon fire and strafing from aircraft and bombing runs are done daily and you enter the areas at your own risk, so if you like to sit in a tree stand and hear the intake of a jet 200 feet above you firing live rounds overhead and ground shake and a whole lot of tree swaying from jet exhaust and the smell of gunpowder this is for you three years ago I was hiking and ran into a live missile Nike type looked like from the early 60s. I left it, just 10 years or so before a kid was pulled over on Hwy 206 with a missile on the back of his vehicle. Anyway, That WMA across from the Millville Airport is Bevans WMA, and there's still live bombs out there, the rockets from the P47 Thunderbolts are still found as well as hundreds of 500 lb bombs buried in hills at the end of power fields where they drop off pheasants for season. Tons of stuff. One old range on Factory road has a torpedo hidden in the Laurel. I grew up out there, all 33500 acres was used up until the early 70s for tank training, gunnery. Bunkers still there hidden. If you like history and collectables walk those dirt roads and you'll find pristine 50 Cal rounds and brass marked 1941 to 1946. I found those bombs taking a break on a wildlife photo shoot. Sat on a hill, felt something googe me in the arse, I took out my bayonet scraped some soil away and there was the nose of a 500 lb bomb. My best friend told me he worked the area and he plowed those fields and they pushed all live ordinance into those knolls. The woods were the ranges and the fields were new do as not to get people walking near UXB. So, if your walking be aware as it wasn't long ago a hunter shot a a pheasant and triggered a bomb. Guess that's what happens when you road hunt. Yep, one minute you'll find a bomb or round then the next an arrow Head. There's over 150,000 Thompson's buried out there under 5 tons of pebbles and encased in oil tags and 50 gallon drums. A secret bunker headquarters under the airport they don't want you to know about. Just south two miles is an abandoned Nike Missile site. The perimeter for the base extended to Dividing Creek North to Millville, East to the River and almost to Fairton where the German POW Camp was on my grandfather's farm off of Watson Lane. The Japanese POW Camp was in Seabrook about 12 miles Northeast of Fairton. As far as Warren Grove, talk to the Range Master, he may let you up into the tower. It's all about history. Don't attempt to enter the forest anywhere near Lakehurst NAES, that's the East Coast Area 51, the MP's will be on top of you like a fly on a turd. The research there is very, let's say interesting. SEMPER Fidelis.
