Fort Indiantown Gap

A 17,000-acre National Guard Training site, one of the busiest Guard sites in the nation. Includes machine gun firing ranges, equipment training facilities, an urban assault complex, and an airfield that is especially busy with helicopters. Also on site is the Northeast Counterdrug Training Center, for training local, state and federal law enforcement personnel. Fort Indiantown Gap was an Army post, a sub-installation of Fort Meade. It was closed by BRAC in 1998, when it was redesignated as a National Guard site. It currently hosts as many as 144,000 people for training purposes over the course of a year.
