Contest 169: State of Confusion

The military is conducting training sessions in three U.S. towns whose names make it unclear exactly what state they're in. One town is down river from Albuquerque; another is just northwest of Missouri's capital; and the final one is west of Grand Forks, N.D.

Name the towns.
