Lodi was once home to a secret communications center that played a key role for the U.S. military during the Cold War and the Vietnam War.

Nestled near vineyards next to the Woodbridge Irrigation Canal, the building was fortified to withstand a possible nuclear attack and equipped to provide worldwide military communications, according to local residents who once worked there.

    Hi Guys, not that I really knew you but said hi on occasion.

    My cousin Mark worked there for many years. My Dad was in the Signal Corp. during WWII. He sold this property to the Telegraph Co. in 1966. We retained a license to continue maintaining the balance of the property in vineyard until my father passed away in 1994 at which time I continued the agreement until 2003. I guess I really wasn't quite aware of being a missle target for the 40 or so years we were at the location. It was known as the "Tower Piece" Your faces do look familiar though. Many memories.
