Ft. Benjamin Harrison, Indiana

The claim: Located in the northeast part of Indianapolis, this base has been decomissioned from "active" use but portions are still ideally converted to hold detainees. Helicopter landing areas still exist for prisoners to be brought in by air, land & rail.

What it really is: The base was closed in 1995. The site of the itself base has been redeveloped into residential neighborhoods, a golf course, and is the site of Fort Harrison State Park.

Despite the fact that the base was officially closed, the Defense Finance and Accounting Service - Indianapolis, as well as several Army Reserve and Indiana National Guard units are located there, and the National Guard opened a new training facility there in 2011.
