    Pretty cool story- PO Box 1142





    An offhand comment from a park visitor unveiled the untold story of a secret Virginia facility where clever interrogation techniques and good old-fashioned eavesdropping helped secure victory in World War II. Now the Park Service is racing to unearth all the details before the last remaining witnesses vanish.

    Sounds just like Camp Tracey which was the Byron Hot Springs Hotel near San Francisco.

    During WWII it was a top-secret facility used to interrogate Japanese POWs and spy on them.

    Listening devices were put into their cells.

    It was shown on The Travel Channels “Off Limits” TV show.

    Sounds a lot like my house today

    That was a very interesting article, but some information had been released years ago too. Not too many secrets from that era are hidden. Just makes you think what's going on somewhere today
