    Because ground forces can't maneuver on a bombing range. UXO sucks.

    That's also why if the USMC takes the land the public will never see it again, even if they don't use it for more than a few years.

    the boy scouts will loose a premium camping area and facility , star gazers/astronomers, amateur rocketeers will also loose a dry lake bed or two that they use for their model rockets. the pending closure will affect more then just the off road community
