Tired of that deployment souvenir?

In case you were wondering what .50-caliber bullets look like, in this Army file photo, a Soldier loads a Stryker armored vehicle with .50-cal ammunition.

Ammunition Amnesty Day on Fort Irwin can take care of that old ammo, Sept. 14

In an effort to minimize hazard and possible personal injury, Fort Irwin will offer an Ammunition Amnesty Day to all Soldiers, Family members, civilians and contractors from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sept. 14. Small arms ammunition, up to and including .50-caliber, may be brought to the rear of building 6111, which is the 759th Explosive Ordnance Disposal Safe Holding Area. Enter through the rear entrance on South Loop Road, near the Barstow Road intersection. Signs will be posted to direct personnel to the location.

No questions will be asked and no penalties are involved. No documentation is required for turn-ins.

Do not move abandoned military ammunition and explosives larger than .50-caliber. For items above .50-caliber, or if you are unsure of the type of ammunition or explosives for turn in, contact the 759th Explosive Ordnance Company at 380-4092.

This program is not designed to circumvent standard ammunition management procedures. Units discovering ammunition on hand after having reconciled their ammunition account are required to make an amended turn-in.
