Well this is even more bizzare than that!! The U.S Army wants to build a theme park! So one question? Where do you expect to get the money for this said project? Shall more soldiers go without armor? Less for the Corps of Engineers? Or maybe another tax cut for the uber rich!! The last time I checked, I had to write a post on how Fort Sam Houston could not pay the electrical bill. Have you people lost your freaking minds?
The Army is considering a proposal to allow a private developer to build a military theme park that would include "4D" rides and bars including a "1st Division Lounge," local officials said.
The massive entertainment and hotel complex next to a national Army museum could draw more than 1 million people a year but Fairfax County authorities are objecting because of already traffic-clogged roads surrounding the proposed site.
Universal City Property Management III, of Orlando, Fla., submitted the unsolicited proposal for the theme park last year.
"You can command the latest M-1 tank, feel the rush of a paratrooper freefall, fly a Cobra Gunship or defend your B-17 as a waist gunner," according to the proposal, which was obtained by The Washington Post.
