I am starting a new post about this because I want every one to see it. I got a letter back from MEM today and this what is said in abbreviation.
"Officers were wrong in telling us that it was illegal and they have made a policy change to that effect. And they realize that it is a hobby especially in Europe but we where taking from is a restricted area, so that is why we got run off from there."
He also suggested, "Though not legally bound to do so is to call them before hand to tell them I am coming. They many times will even let us know where we can go to get the best pictures."
He also said "That we should expect to be approached but that is all"
At least cooler heads prevailed and some one got it right.
