    Discarded electronics devices fill an abandoned bunker once used for ammunition storage in the former Naval Ammunition Facility in Vieques, Puerto Rico, Friday, May 3, 2013. The cleanup of the bombing range on an island the Navy once called its "crown jewel" of live-fire training is expected to take another decade, and the mayor of Vieques noted the island of roughly 10,000 people still has no hospital to treat illnesses ranging from cancer to asthma that local residents blame on military activity. Many celebrated on Wednesday the May 1st anniversary of the U.S. Navy's departure from the Puerto Rican island of Vieques 10 years ago.
