The US Department of Defense is considering Vermont as the location for an antiballistic missile launch site. US Senator Patrick Leahy said Vermont’s Camp Ethan Allen is one of five locations being considered for a Ground-based Midcourse Interceptor East Coast location. The other locations being considered are Camp Ravenna Joint Military Training Center, Ohio; NAS Portsmouth SERE Training Area, Maine; Fort Custer CTC, Mich.; and Fort Drum, N.Y. No decision has been made to deploy the system, but the Pentagon is required to conduct a study of possible East Coast locations. Leahy said he is opposed to the missile system because he considers it a waste of money and he does not want it in Vermont.
