The first area of the base which was almost close to the highway of Monrovia - Gbarnga-Monrovia Highway, it was there that they had good buildings, I mean the living quarters. It was there that the administration of the base was run. And behind the hill there was a forest between the living quarters and another part of the base, you know, where they had one - the shooting range where we practised firing and they had a detention area there, a jail that was made of a hole. Then beyond the second area that I have just mentioned, about almost a mile distance towards another mountain in the forest, they had a small settlement which at that time we called Up the Mount. You know, in Liberian English it meant up the mountain. We also had activities there concerning the base.
