Brunswick Part Two- The Nukes

The nuclear weapons storage area at Brunswick is the smallest one that I’ve come across. It sits atop a small hill with the surrounding woods clear cut to provide a clear line of sight for the Marine’s who once guarded the weapons.

    I was a Marine sentry stationed there in the late 80s and early 90s. It is sad to see the base decommed. I have a tremendous amount of memories there. I walked many miles around the perimeter of the fence-line and sat in the “eye in the sky” tower many nights watching the northern lights ripple. Thanks for the pictures and memories!

  3. I was an aircrewman in VP-10 from 1991-1995. I went to nuclear weapons loading school (which was an entire week if you can believe it). I remember the Marines setting up a perimeter around the P-3C when we would do our practice loads. My only choices for a duty station after my initial schools were over was Maine, Florida, California or Hawaii. I picked Maine and got it. Used to snowboard at Sunday River all the time. Loved that base & state. RIP.
