Property owners unhappy about Army’s plan to buy land for gun range

James Edris’ family has owned their property in Annville, Lebanon County, for roughly 60 years. He grew up there and so did his son. “I don’t want to give it up if I don’t have to,” said Edris. However, he may have to do that. The Army is getting a new, more powerful bullet. Fort Indiantown Gap has to expand its gun ranges as a result.

“It isn’t about us taking somebody’s land. It’s about us acquiring land so we can safely train here and prepare our soldiers to fight and win our country’s wars” said Lieutenant Colonel Robert Hepner. The Army will buy 220 acres from 16 property owners like Edris to expand the ranges for the new bullets.

The Army is still training with the older bullets and will use the rest of them up before switching to the new ammunition. It could take anywhere from six months to two years.
