In Part I of my story of the mysterious Army base near Seneca Lake, N.Y., I was trying to find out how I could gain access to this huge decommissioned former military base with its large herd of white deer. The base, which is still not open to the public, was used during World War II to house munitions. You know, like bullets and bombs.
