Format: Paperback
Having been stationed in RR/PR I find that the closing of Rosevelt Roads Navel Station, the primary users of Vieques, was a great loss to the defense of the West Indies, and a economic loss to the people of PR. The politics resulting in the closing was not for the people of Vieques, but the potential 'resorting' of the island for development. Hopfully the land will be retained much as most of St John, as a National reserve.
