Editor’s note: If you think all of this is simply conspiracy mongering, consider the fact our government indeed repeatedly plans for widespread “bio-terrorist” attacks, most notably Operation Dark Winter, staged nearly three months before the attacks of September 11, 2001, and the subsequent anthrax attacks beginning on September 18, 2001. As well, consider the national-level domestic and international TOPOFF exercises, primarily involving biological and chemical attacks.
I have no idea what to make of this one. All of the sites I was able to find that reference this stockpile assume that it has something to do with an upcoming American holocaust and martial law, etc. Again, I have no idea.
Let’s try to work trough this one a bit…
First of all, what are they?
The product is called a “Burial Vault.” They are made by PolyGuard Vaults. Their website describes the product as follows:
A Burial Vault is an outside receptacle or container, in which the casket and remains are placed, at the time of burial. This helps to maintain the above ground aesthetics of the grave site.
Polyguard Burial Vaults are now manufactured using an injection moulding process, and constructed of non-biodegradable, water and chemical resistant polymers.
So, they’re not coffins, but liners in which coffins would be placed before burial.
I did some more research to determine if the government did business with PolyGuard Vaults. Indeed, the U.S. Veterans Administration has been buying Burial Vaults from PolyGuard Vaults for years. Use fedspending.org to look up the contracts. Click the Contracts tab and type in Polyguard.
You can go back to the year 2000. When you use the Level of Detail: Complete (all information) setting, this will show more detail. In the “Contract Description” fields you’ll see: THERMOPLASTIC GRAVELINERS. So, it seems to make sense that the VA would be buying these things…
Here’s a reference with regard to casket burials in a cemetery in Hawaii. This is from the Aloha Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America:
Casket burials now require Polyguard Burial Vault at a cost of $220 for family members and no charge for the Retiree, Veteran or Active Duty personnel. The vaults were required to prevent the burial site from settling and collapsing following the burial.
Anyone looking into this situation in Georgia might find the VA contracts and just think, “Yep, the VA bought them, nothing to see here.” An interesting question would be: How many units did the VA get? I haven’t been able to determine that. If we knew that, we’d be able figure out roughly how many casket burials were happening at VA run cemeteries vs. how many Burial Vaults were ordered. If there was a large difference, well, we would have a pretty good idea of where the extra units went…
Where are they?
They are in a field near Madison, Georgia, just off of Lion’s Club Road and next to (as far as I can tell) a Fowler Flemister Concrete plant. See coordinates: +33° 33′ 57.36″, -83° 29′ 6.26″.
Here’s a video taken at the site:
I tried to figure out a way to count them, but I couldn’t do it. I felt like my estimates could easily be off by an order of magnitude. To say that it’s tens of thousands is probably conservative.
Who owns the land?
I haven’t been able to figure that out. The legend that I keep running across is that a private individual leased the land to FEMA. I suppose that’s possible, or it could be absolute nonsense. I don’t know. With all of the U.S. Government’s vast land holdings and facilities, FEMA leased this field from someone to store these Burial Vaults??? Again, I suppose that anything is possible.
If these Burial Vaults do belong to FEMA, that would be very interesting. I went through all of the government contracts with PolyGuard going back to 2000 and FEMA hasn’t done any (on the books) business with them. Since 2000, the government contracts that went to PolyGuard were all awarded by the VA.
That’s the question. I have no idea and I haven’t found any good guesses either. The consensus on the foil sites is that these Burial Vaults are to be used in the aftermath of some kind of false flag attack or holocaust/final solution situation. Initially, I thought the same thing, but when I thought about it more carefully, wouldn’t FEMA just stockpile body bags?
The anonymous comments on some sites say that it’s probably related to contingency planning for a natural disaster. Again, wouldn’t FEMA just stockpile body bags?
One thing that I haven’t seen mentioned anywhere is how much money is represented by this Burial Vault stockpile. The newsletter above puts the cost at $220. I have not been able to determine what the government pays, per unit, but let’s not even assume that $220 is the cost. Let’s say it’s just $100 each. At that rate, ten thousand units would be worth $1 million. So, there’s easily several million dollars worth of inventory sitting in that field.
To the imbeciles who suggest that this is some sort of routine private inventory for a mortuary business (yes, I have seen people suggesting that): There is A) no way that a mortuary company would spend millions of dollars for so many of these at once and B) no way that a mortuary company would leave them sitting unguarded in a field for years.
I’d love for someone to provide a This-Is-Normal-There’s-Nothing-To-See-Here explanation, but so far, I haven’t been able to find such an explanation.
One last thing: This isn’t a new story
