I lived there twice during the early 80’s and late 80’s and was one of the last families to moved during the closure in late 1991. I remember towards the end of the closure we would get busses off base to a different school in the city. I’ve been telling people the story of when I lived at George AFB and took a group of kids to the radioactive pond beyond the barbwire fence in the back of the base, we caught frogs and brought them back to our houses, there was an old shot up vehicle, dead animal skeletons, and the pond was radiator green fluid glowing like, and now in my 30’s I’m having crazy health issues! I’m going to look into this!
