Unexploded ordnance precaution
Originally known as Camp Cooke, Vandenberg Air Force base started as a U.S. Army training camp in 1941. In response to World War II and eventually the Korean conflict, the Army used the land for various anti-aircraft artillery and ordnance training. As a result of the training conducted many years ago, areas of land on Vandenberg still have unexploded ordnance, also known as UXOs. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Shane M. Phipps/Released)
