I worked on the "highly sensitive munitions". We had to do a physical inventory twice per year check out the bunkers every month or so. Someone finally figured out that we would never have time to get permission to use them before being pushed back past the storage site and they were relocated -- after I had left, thank God. Oscar Ruiz has the location right. There were signs all over the place in English and German about it being a restricted area. I remember that a German hunter decided that the warning did not apply to him. He was of course spotted and spent the night surrounded by armed troops. Pretty tense situation.

I recall a NATO Site 33, from my 1st Squadron hitch. It was supposed to contain highly sensitive munitions.

NATO 23 was located in the Tennenlohe forest close to the town of Erlangen. The 2d Bde, 1st Armored Division's had an ammunition storage point nearby as well.
