A childhood friend of mine worked at the Aerospace Medical Lab and I don't know if you remember or knew about the Monkey Virus when it broke out but Steve was the first to contract it and he died. Not many people know NAS Pensacola did a lot of the early work now associated with NASA. We played around with Baker's little compartment that went 'up'. Back then it wasn't quite as 'secure' as things are now. :) We were just nosey kids. No threat to national security.
The Photo School, the Octogan House and a number of other buildings have now been declared National Treasure's or Landmark's. Either catagory insures their protection. Sadly, no one can secure anything when it comes up against something as terrible as Ivan. It's interesting when one looks at those older structures such as the forts and you realize they were built to last and they have, for the most part.
