steve638 Posted December 7, 2007 Share Posted December 7, 2007 Placing caches on military post, should it be allowed or not allowed ? I hope posting this doesn't get the caches removed because there are many excellent places to visit on our military post. According to the guidelines you should not. You'll find this by following the link: Caches near or on military installations. http://www.geocaching.com/about/guidelines.aspx I'm an active duty service member and personally don't have any problem with placing them on post, my personal opinion may not count though. Also here's some caches located on military post, I won't list to many in case people start reporting them to be removed. Ft. Knox http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...9f-e34ea731dde9 Ft. Bragg http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?id=129482 In Iraq on a US military post http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...a4-5978edbfc232 Some review of the policy needs to be made. Many service members are geocachers and could be used to verify that caches are placed in good locations that won't get them in trouble. I propose that a cache reviewer ask someone near the cache or visit the site themselves to verify that it is a good location if it is located on a post. Some of these may take longer to approve of course. Common sense and a through review of the placement of the cache will be needed requiring more time of our volunteers who do this, thank them for doing this and/or go with them. If you agree with me please let ground speak know so some review of the policy can be made and let a comment here please. If you don't please write why or why not. I'm all in favor of people visiting our post to show support or just to swing by and see some of the very historic sights we have to offer. Ie. Our museums, battle grounds and other places of interest. Quote Link to comment
