Yes, this really doesn't even cover half of the story. Also, Culebra has a similar story, though the Navy left in 1975.
- Until May 2003 about two-thirds of the island was controlled by the US Navy. The Navy used it as a bombing range and training facility. After four years of protest after the accidental bombing death of viequense David Sanes in 1999, the Navy left the island for good and the land was turned over to the US Department of the Interior.
