No, it’s not a giant missile and launcher.

Some had questioned why what appeared to be a missile launcher had gone up at the base.

Base spokeswoman Capt. Pam Marshall said concrete piles are being brought in to anchor a new $13 million waterfront operations facility, which is expected to be completed in November.
