Ammunition Amnesty Day will take place May 22 at Fort Drum. It is held annually in conjunction with Fort Drum Safety Day.
The Ammunition Amnesty Program permits the return of ammunition or residue items to the Ammunition Supply Point with “no questions asked” at any time during duty hours on this day.
The ASP does not maintain an “Amnesty Box”; therefore, all amnesty items must be handed to an ASP staff member. An amnesty turn-in cannot be used to turn in ammunition issued for training; it is used to turn in ammunition found on post.
Ammunition found on post is ammunition that is found and is of unknown origin. It should be considered hazardous and should not be moved by untrained personnel (except for small-arms ammunition .50 caliber and below).
If you are unsure of the ammunition type, report its location to Range Branch, Bldg. 4855, at 772-7152. If Range Branch cannot be reached, contact the Military Police, Bldg. 10715, at 772-5156 or 772-5157, or from a cell phone at *766 or *PMO.
Small-arms ammunition found may be brought to the ASP for turn-in under the amnesty program.
Individuals are encouraged to volunteer information concerning ammunition found on post. This information may help the ASP determine if the ammunition could be declared serviceable.
