Military used remote Los Coyotes site for just two sessions

A remote site on the Los Coyotes Reservation in southern California has only been used twice by the military, The North County Times reports.

The paper stumbled upon the Eagle Rock Training Center last month by accident. At the time, two men -- Brian Bonfiglio, the former vice president of Blackwater Worldwide, and Sean Roach, a motivational speaker -- said the facility was being used to train U.S. troops to fight in Afghanistan.

But in a subsequent interview, ex-owner Bonfiglio admitted the military has only used the center twice in the last two years. "There's no money in bullets," Bonfiglio told the paper. "The idea I gave it a shot. It didn't work out. That's why I abandoned it."

Roach now owns the facility and said he will focus on attracting Hollywood clients although the site still could be used for military training. There's also plans to host corporate team-building retreats and paint ball games.
