I live about 4 miles from Camp Beauregard. My granfather helped build many of the buildings during there in WWII. It is still in operation to this date and a training center for many different military operations such as helicopter training, etc. It is also a FEMA Staging site for Louisiana. It also houses a State Prison which closed for economic reasons this year. There is a large US Marshall facillity on the grounds as well where the marshalls recieve training. The whole operation is much larger now then when I was a boy just after WWII.
