Leaving aside the obvious POV minefield, surely it would only be an "incident" if it had actually happened? "Plot" or "conspiracy" would be more appropriate, and obviously with the qualifier of "alleged" until the suspects are proven in a court of law to be guilty of any such plan.

Can someone add information about the riot of June 5, 1969 and the deplorable conditions it exposed? Further information can be found in Fort Dix Stockade: Our Prison Camp Next Door. by Joan Crowell 1974, ISBN 0825630355. A summary was printed in The People's Almanac, p. 68. --Auric 17:48, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

In 1969 Goodman and Scherr unsuccessfully sued the Universal Match Corporation, claiming copyright infringement for selling matchbooks bearing a picture of the Ultimate Weapon statue they created while in the Army. It's an interesting case but with too much detail to cover here, might make an interesting article on its own. One link here. --CliffC (talk) 11:40, 3 January 2009 (UTC)
No reason at all, except that we (or at least I) didn't know about that. I've now added a mention that the USCG's Atlantic Strike Team is sited at Fort Dix. (Somebody should write an article to turn that red link blue.) All the best to you and your son, CliffC (talk) 16:19, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

The result of the proposal was move per request. I struggled mightily with this close given the grave differences of opinion expressed below between the warring factions but I think the supports have better made their case. --Fuhghettaboutit (talk) 22:04, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
Support, in line with popular usage. The current title is not very clear or obvious to readers. bobrayner (talk) 12:06, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
Support. A jumble of acronyms might make sense within the US military, but not to the wider public, while even in the UK "Fort Dix" has a certain degree of recognition. Nick Cooper (talk) 12:54, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
Support. JB MDL Dix is not descriptive to the average reader (me). I immediately came to the talk page to see if there was an error. As precedent, the Fort Devens page retained its name even after the base closed and reopened as a reserve training center. --Zfish118 (talk) 05:31, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm not sure where to bring this up, but in the overview it says "the first female recruits entered basic training at Fort Dix. In 1991" This is not true, there were females in basic training there from at least 1989. That's when I went through basic there. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 01:11, 30 April 2014 (UTC)
