Second Front 3 Missile Ranger May 2018 Partnership helps restore Trinity Site Ranch House en-GBBy Bill Godbyen-GB Archaeologisten-GBIn 2017 the historic en-GB en-GB at White Sands Missile en-GB Range, New Mexico reen-GB -en-GB ceived some overdue resen-GB -en-GB torations and repair. The en-GB en-GB is a contributing element en-GB of the Trinity National en-GB Historic Landmark, site en-GB of the detonation of the en-GB en-GB ranch house was utilized en-GB by the Manhattan Proen-GB -en-GB ject scientists to assemen-GB -en-GB ble the plutonium hemien-GB -en-GB spheres of the weapon in en-GB July 1945. en-GB The ranch house was en-GB built by Franz Schmidt, en-GB a German immigrant, in en-GB en-GB acquired the house in the en-GB 1930s. en-GB Georges brothers en-GB owned the nearby ranch en-GB utilized as Base Camp en-GB for the atomic test. Both en-GB ranches were occupied en-GB until approximately en-GB 1942, when all the ranchen-GB -en-GB ers were vacated to alen-GB -en-GB low for the area to be utien-GB -en-GB lized by the Alamogordo en-GB Bombing Range for taren-GB -en-GB get practice.en-GB Following the Manen-GB -en-GB hattan Project, the ranch en-GB was abandoned, sufferen-GB -en-GB ing major deterioration. en-GB In 1982 Major General en-GB Niles Fulwylers visen-GB -en-GB ited the ranch house and en-GB recognized its historic en-GB value. Fulwyler vowed to en-GB restore the ranch house, en-GB which was completed in en-GB 1984. In 1995, the 50th en-GB anniversary of the atomic en-GB test, efforts were made to en-GB again restore and repair en-GB a decade of weathering. en-GB Since 1995 only minor en-GB work has been done due en-GB to a struggle for funden-GB -en-GB ing, a problem common en-GB to historic buildings on en-GB many installations. en-GB In recognition of the en-GB need to stop further deteen-GB -en-GB rioration of this tremenen-GB -en-GB dously important historic en-GB site, the White Sands en-GB Missile Range Garrison en-GB provided funding to proen-GB -en-GB ceed with necessary reen-GB -en-GB pairs. en-GB Project lead Bill Godby en-GB utilized the Cooperative en-GB Ecosystem Studies Units en-GB (CESU) network, adminen-GB -en-GB istered by the Ft. Worth en-GB Corp of Engineers, to en-GB contract CESU memen-GB-en-GB ber Cornerstones Comen-GB -en-GB munity Partnerships of en-GB Santa Fe New Mexico. en-GB Cornerstones historic en-GB restoration expert, Jean en-GB Fulton, took on the proen-GB -en-GB ject with the assistance en-GB of Cornerstones trainen-GB -en-GB ing coordinator Nicole en-GB Kliebert. The scope of en-GB the project included reen-GB -en-GB construction of an enen-GB -en-GB try ramp, built by the en-GB Manhattan Project, the en-GB porch, railings and banen-GB -en-GB nisters, windows, stucco en-GB repair and replacement, en-GB rock wall repair, and imen-GB -en-GB plementing a site drainen-GB -en-GB age plan. en-GB Cornerstones, a nonen-GB -en-GB profit, is organized to en-GB provide workshops that en-GB incorporate interns and en-GB individual volunteers, en-GB working alongside exen-GB -en-GB perts, to perform cost efen-GB -en-GB fective restorations and en-GBrepair to historic strucen-GB -en-GB tures in a learning enen-GB -en-GB vironment. Both Fulen-GB -en-GB ton and Kliebert reached en-GB out to identify support en-GB for the project between en-GB 2016 and 2017. Partners en-GB included students from en-GB New Mexico State Unien-GB -en-GB en-GB Engineering and Survey en-GB Technology (led by Proen-GB -en-GB fessor Sonya Cooper), en-GB providing the site drainen-GB -en-GB age plan. Cottonwood en-GB Gulch Expeditions, an en-GB outstanding outdoor eduen-GB -en-GB cational program in New en-GB Mexico, provided a sinen-GB -en-GB gle day of volunteer laen-GB -en-GB bor, 17 strong, to execute en-GB the drainage plan. Last, en-GB and perhaps most imporen-GB -en-GB tant to the project, were en-GB the dedicated team of inen-GB -en-GB terns and volunteers.en-GB The ranch house is loen-GB -en-GB cated several hours north en-GB of the base cantonment en-GB and an hour from Soen-GB -en-GB corro New Mexico to the en-GB northwest. en-GB Most of Fultons crew en-GB stayed uprange 3 to 4 en-GB days at a time while comen-GB-en-GB pleting the work, enduren-GB -en-GB ing multiple range evacen-GB -en-GB uations for missile tests en-GB that began as early as 4 en-GB AM. Weather during en-GB the project workshops, en-GB summer and fall, was en-GB extreme, often exceeden-GB -en-GB ing 100 degrees and inen-GB-en-GB cluded snow flurries, en-GB en-GB -en-GB spite the challenges spiren-GB -en-GB its remained high and the en-GB work got done. en-GB Highlights of the 2016-en-GB 17 efforts included exeen-GB -en-GB cuting the drainage plan, en-GB window reconstruction, en-GB stucco repair, ramp and en-GB porch reconstruction and en-GB wall repair. The chalen-GB -en-GB lenges of a project like en-GB this are multi-fold. Fulen-GB -en-GB ton spent many hours goen-GB -en-GB ing through historic phoen-GB -en-GB tos and previous restoraen-GB -en-GB tion records, to ensure en-GB historic accuracy for reen-GB -en-GB pairs, with particular aten-GB -en-GB tention to the stucco. Alen-GB -en-GB though a scope may outen-GB -en-GB line a task, its not always en-GB known just what may unen-GB -en-GB fold to complicate the efen-GB -en-GB fort. In the case of the en-GB stucco, Fulton successen-GB -en-GB fully performed many en-GB tests to try and find a en-GB suitable color and texture en-GB match. Also knowing the en-GB extent of water damage en-GB to the adobe bricks unen-GB -en-GB derneath a stucco failure en-GB is not possible, until the en-GB stucco is removed. en-GB Cornerstones staff and en-GB the exceptional interns en-GB and volunteers overcame en-GB all the challenges put in en-GB front of them to bring en-GB this wonderful historic en-GB gem back to life.

Building 1782; or call (575) 678-2716.en-GBHittoKill Roberts said they have vastly improved in terms of data recovery for such a fast missile. The successful test ad vances the programs technical maturity level and builds confidence in the interceptors abil ity to defeat current and evolving threats. Roberts test in the test cycle takes place at WSMR due to the ranges unique capabilities and restricted airspace. The U.S. Army and international custom ers have made it clear to days global security en vironment demands agile, close-range solutions that protect warfighters and citizens from enemy rock ets, artillery and mortars, said Tim Cahill, vice pres ident of Integrated Air and heed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, in a Lock heed Martin news release. The design of the MHTK interceptor enables a high ly-effective solution in a very compact package. We look forward to build ing on this success. WSMR provides test mission support includ ing optics, radar, teleme try, communications and a four-person team at the launch pad during the mission. Prior to the custom ers arrival, Roberts said he and his team spent a week prepping the site. We make it so that when they arrive its just a mat ter of them setting up their equipment, he said. The MHTK uses hit-tokill technology, which de stroys threats through an extremely accurate appli cation of kinetic energy in body-to-body contact. Hit-to-kill technology eliminates the incoming threat while reducing the risk of collateral damage. The MHTK interceptor is less than two-and-a-half feet long and weighs about The missile has the po tential to bring miniatur ized capabilities to the costs and reduces logistic footprints.

6 Missile Ranger May 2018 Nearly 8,500 participate in Bataan Memorial Death March Missile RangerNearly 8,500 march ers participated in the 29th annual Bataan Me White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, March 25, commemorat ing 76 years of the Bataan Everybody has their own motivation for why they are here to do this journey today, said WSMR Commander Brig. Gen. Eric Sanchez at the start of the event. But I think its important that we remem ber what this is truly all about. Its about the sur vivors and those who are no longer here with us, he said. So when things are getting tough out there on the course you want to give up, youve got blisters think about what these gentlemen here to day went through and all those others that survived or those who didnt sur vive, and hopefully that gives you the motivation to continue your journey, Sanchez said. The Bataan Memo ors a special group of World War II heroes re sponsible for the defense of the islands of Luzon, Corregidor and the har bor defense forts of the Philippines. On April 9, 1942, tens of thousands of American and Filipino Soldiers surrendered to Japanese forces. The Americans were Army, Army Air Corps, Navy and Marines. Among those seized were mem bers of the 200th Coast Artillery, New Mexico National Guard. The survivors in atten dance included: Harold Bergbower James Bollich Paul Kerchum Oscar Leonard William Overmier Ben Skardon The 26.2-mile Bataan is set on the hilly, des ert terrain, with some times unpredictable weather. Marchers com pete in teams or individu ally. Some compete in the heavy division carrying 35-pound rucksacks. WSMR Garrison Comreminded participants that this is more than a mara thon. Why are you here? What motivates you? he asked. When I put words to paper about what this (event) means I think it is to properly honor the fallen, show due respect to the survivors and fa cilitate the rehabilitation of our wounded warriors. But more importantly each one of you is out here to challenge your selves today by marching or running in honor of somebody or something that is important to you, Brown said. You being here is im portant because it helps us remember the past and you are helping us tell the Army story each and ev ery year. As you get around the course you are going to see about 2,000 volun teers that make this me morial march possible. Take the time to thank them for what they do. Sanchez also thanked wounded warriors for their participation in the march. Thank you for youve done for our great nation. You are an inspi ration to all of us and you will continue to inspire the marchers out there. As participants reached honor of being congratu lated by survivors of the Maj. Trisha Stavinoh was one of those who crossed the finish line early in the day and was March survivor Oscar Leonard. It makes me so happy to see him because he is such an inspiration, said Stavinoh, a sports dieti tian at Joint Base San Antonio. 1st Lt. Rebekah Mazany, a Marine Air cer from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., attended a stand ing-room only event to hear Leonard speak the day prior. I was thinking about what he talked about yesterday, learning that he spent 42 months as a prisoner of war, said Mazany, who was in full uniform to run the 26.2mile march in combat March in 2008 while still in college. Since then, she has walked it once and ran the course on four other occasions. You dont get this op portunity anywhere. Its ing opportunity, she said.

7 Missile Ranger May 2018 Leaders break ground for state-of-the-art fueling facility en-GBBy Miriam Rodriguezen-GB EditorWhite Sands Missile Range will soon have three state-of-the-art fuel facilities following a ground breaking cere mony March 5 near the El Paso Gate. The fueling fa cilities will be located at main post, Rhodes Canyon and Stallion Range Camp. Garrison Commander Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. Vincent McCormick joined Logistic Readiness Toro and TRC Govern ment Services, LLC Con struction Manager Steve Bump in breaking ground at the main cantonment building site in a cere mony attended by several LRC employees. All three sites are to be Fully Operational Capa ble by Sept. 30, 2018. The old fueling stations will be demolished once the new ones are complete. Toro said all three fu eling facilities are well overdue and will be high tech operations. I wanted you all to be part of this history in the making with the LRC, that is why I asked you all to come out here and participate in this event, Toro told employ ees. A lot of work went in to make this happen, Toro said as he thanked the TRC contractor, the Garrison. Brown said this proj ect is another example of teaming with the contrac tor. It is nothing unusual for what we do here at White Sands, because we deal with the LRC on a daily basis to deliver ex cellence and readiness to this installation, Brown said. Partnering with contractors also allows us to do more with less. This is just another example of White Sands moving forward and pro viding a key service to the installation, Brown said. We cant forget why we are here and what we are here to do, and that is to deliver readiness to the nation. Brown also thanked LRC for their support. We could not support the installation without the work you do every day. AgencyEnergy awarded the fixed-price contract for new fuel support ser vices at three locations here at WSMR, consist ing of a four-year Base Period and three fiveyear Options lasting until at least 2037. Rupert Balderrama, chief of Supply and Ser said the contractor, TRC Government Services of Tulsa, Oklahoma, is tasked to receive, store, issue and account for ucts, as well as providing maintenance and repair of the three facilities thru the life of the contract. These are Contrac tor-Owned, Contrac tor-Operated facilities, so TRC is responsible to de sign-build-own-operate and maintain the infrastructure and equipment. They are an experienced COCO contractor to Fort Bragg, NC in 1998 and now have eight locations, operating a total of 17 facilities. Balderrama said this is a Services Contract, and in order to perform those services it is necessary for TRC to build new facili ties here at WSMR Main Post, Rhodes Canyon, and Stallion Range Cen ter. WSMR is providing the raw land via a lease that runs concurrent with the contract, as well as the utilities with connections at the boundaries of the properties. TRC is then responsible for every thing within the perime ter of their facility lease. Using Best Commercial Practices, combined with certain design elements to meet WSMR require ments such as environ mental, security, compat etc., these sites will pro vide new and thus tech nologically-upgraded ser vices. Here on Main Post we will have four 24/7 re tail islands with three dual-hose dispensers for gasoline, two for diesel and one for F24 Jet fuel. Each island will have a Fuel Master pedestal for use with the VIL Key or GSA credit card. Addi tionally the site will be manned Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for customer assis tance, as well as issuing bulk fuels F24, diesel, and unleaded fuel. There will be a total of seven hori zontal, double-wall tanks storing 42,000 gallons of F24, and 24,000 gallons each of the diesel and un leaded fuel. Stallion Range Camp will have a facility much like the one here at Main Post. However, there will be a single 24/7 is land with dual-hose dis pensers for unleaded fuel and diesel. This will also be a manned facil ity with the same hours during the week as Main Post, so that the TRC Op erators can dispense bulk F24 Jet and diesel. There izontal, double-wall tanks storing 24,000 gallons of F24, 27,000 gallons of diesel and 12,000 gallons of unleaded fuel. The Rhodes Canyon facility will be located just west of the exist ing fuel site at the cross roads of Range Roads 6 and 7. This site will have a single 24/7 fueling is land with two dual-hose dispensers; one each for unleaded fuel and die sel. There will be two horizontal, double-wall tanks storing 12,000 gal lons each of unleaded fuel and diesel. This shall be a longterm partnership be tween White Sands Mis and TRC Government Services. TRC will have three employees here at Main Post, including the Terminal Manager and Accountant for resolv ing the fuels accountabil ity. Stallion will also have three employees to manage that site, as well as the Rhodes Canyon facility.
