Seattle has the old Pacific Medical Building (originally the U.S. Marine Hospital) on Beacon Hill

 

During the first part of World War 2, my grandfather was assigned to an anti-aircraft battalion at a nearby park. During practice, while firing blank rounds, his loader accidentally slipped a live round into a 40mm Bofors and he fired a round over this same building.

 

As my uncle said, there was a reason why Grandpa Harry made corporal three times when serving in the Army.
