To the Editor:
After over two decades of efforts by multiple parties to have our Boca Grande Rear Range Light and land turned over to the public domain, on Aug. 15, 2013, the Department of the Army formally relinquished any and all claims on the property. This decision will allow the Coast Guard to process the property back to the Bureau of Land Management and Public Domain for further action. With this letter, this land is removed from use for military purposes enacted by Executive Orders dated Aug. 24, 1847.
