Nuclear weapons[edit]

The thing about nuclear weapons sounded a little politically motivated, so I made it more neutral sounding by adding a comment about how difficult it would be to keep such a thing secret from the Japanese government when they jointly run the base with the US government.Worldruler20 (talk) 18:49, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

The thing about nuclear weapons was admittedly unsubstantiated, not specifically related to Yokosuka, but to US Bases in general, and seemed to be no more than wild speculation, so I deleted it.

Pronunciation[edit]

Is there any chance someone with some expertise in the matter could put an International_Phonetic_Alphabet spelling on the page?

Cave Survey[edit]

Who conducted this survey of caves? How would someone acquire it? The information in the article isn't clear on why this was done or about citing the information.

I believe it was the US Army Corps of Engineers, but I don't have a citation for that. Unfortunately there is no museum on the base, so finding detailed historical information about the place is extremely difficult. As for acquiring maps of the caves, you'd probably have to go to either the base public works office, or base security, and both of those offices would most likely assume that you're just interested in spelunking, which is strictly forbidden, due to the dangerous instability of the caves (collapses are frequent, as made evident by the numerous tunnel entrances which have spilled out onto the road). So if you asked to see the maps they'd probably just look at you like you're retarded and say no.

CVN-73[edit]

Can we please update the horribly outdated section on the George Washington, it's been in port here for awhile now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 205.56.145.34 (talk) 11:20, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
