New Jersey Army Installations where our lawyers practice:

Fort Dix, Burlington

Fort Dix is a US Army installation located across a huge area encompassing the Townships of New Hanover, Pemberton, and Springfield, in Burlington County, New Jersey. It was built in 1918 and named in honor of Major General John Adams Dix, who served in the War of 1812 and the Civil War. Fort Dix was one of the first bases to fall to the Base Realignment and Closure Commission in 1988. This cost the base its basic training mission. Nevertheless, the base has attracted army reservists that helped develop the post into a 31,000 acre training center. At present, Fort Dix employs 3,000 personnel to accommodate the at least 15,000 soldiers who hold training in the post every weekend. Since the September 2001 attacks, the post has served as a deployment area for troops sent to Afghanistan and Iraq.

Fort Monmouth, Monmouth County

Fort Monmouth was selected for closure in 2005 and by 2011 most of the Army personnel are required to moved to bases and installations in Maryland or Ohio. The base gained permanent status in 1925 and was named in honor of the soldiers who died in the Battle of Monmouth during the American Revolution. Julius Rosenberg had worked on base during WWII and was convicted of stealing plans and passing them to the Soviet Union. The soon nearing closure of the base is estimated by the DoD to cause the loss of about 10,000 jobs, but it will saved $1 billion

. There have been challenges to these figures as other independent investigations have found the savings to be only $31 million.

Picatinny Arsenal, Morris County

Picatinny Arsenal has been used by the US Military since 1880. After the Civil War it became apparent that storage depots were needed further north because during the war Confederates had seized most of the ammunition depots, which were located in the south. Since that time Picatinny has served an ever increasingly important role in the storage of ammunition. Today it serves as the premier military base for guns and ammunition, thanks to Pentagon recommendations in 2005. Now the Arsenal is the center of most of the DoD’s research, development, and acquisition of guns and ammunition.
