    Nephew of mine stationed at Ft Knox,

    Got this pic for you and a comment:

    "They moved the armored core from protecting the vault so he reckons there isn't even any gold in it".

    I think your Nephew understands that the bluff has been run.

    Gold is irrelevant, the number of dollars outstanding has seen to that, just print what you need.

    I live a few miles down that road.

    The armor on Fort Knox was not "protecting the bullion depository". Treasury does that.
    I was in the post meetings directly after 9/11, they didn't want anything from the Army.
    In fact, they were very insular and kept to themselves, they had their own communications etc.
    It is located on the outside of the main gate, meaning they don't enter the post to enter the depository where that picture was taken.
    The MPs used to have [1990s] a RV and some kind of reaction force, but I don't think Treasury relied on them too much.
    Fort Knox was home to the Armor School, now at Fort Benning. They did have a unit that was a training aid for the Armor School, but they moved with the School.
    We had some deployable units a few years ago, not Armor, but they left a while ago. There was an Infantry unit when I arrived in 1994, but they were outprocessing when I was inprocessing.

    If you see that little building on the far side of the parking, in front of the depository, I can tell you something about that.
    When they were building it they dug up an area about 5 times the size of the final building. I was shocked to see the little building they ended up with.
    I suspect there is something under it much bigger.

    After the parking lot, before the actual bullion depository, is a little grey building. That is what I am talking about. Also there is a fairly big metal building put up after 9/11 that is not pictured. I have some pictures I may post, have to dig them up.

    Just what IS that small building for? Maybe the main Fort is a decoy.
