Road Trip: Pine Bluff Arsenal, Arkansas

The Pine Bluff Arsenal (PBA) is a United States Army installation located in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. PBA is one of the six Army installations in the United States which stores chemical weapons. PBA supplies specialized production, storage, maintenance and distribution of readiness products, and delivers technical services to the Armed Forces and Homeland Security.

PBA also designs, manufactures and refurbishes smoke, riot control, and incendiary munitions, as well as chemical/biological defense operations items. It serves as a technology center for illuminating and infrared munitions and is also the only place in the Northern Hemisphere where white phosphorus munitions are filled. Its Homeland Security mission includes first-responder equipment training and surveillance of prepositioned equipment.

PBA satisfies the Department of Defense’s peace time and replenishment requirements by providing the U.S. and allied forces with critical products and services that are primarily unavailable from other sources.

PBA also provides specialized training and logistical support for the Department of Homeland Security. PBA’s core primary missions include: conventional ammunition, chemical biological defense, engineering and technical support, mobile and powered systems support and base operations support to numerous tenant activities. Also a conventional depot, PBA has 1.3 million square feet of storage capacity with over 75,000 tons of inventory.

PBA has the capability to produce, renovate and store over 60 different conventional ammunition products ranging in caliber from 440 mm to 175 mm. 85 percent of these products are produced only at PBA. The Arsenal’s specialties include production of munitions containing payloads for smoke (signaling, spotting and obscuration), non-lethal, riot control, incendiary, illumination and infrareduses.

Smoke payload capabilities include white phosphorous, red phosphorous, terephathalic acid (TA) and hexaclorethane (HC) for both munitions and grenades. PBA is the only facility with the capability to fill white phosphorous munitions. The Arsenal is capable of producing munitions designed to provide friendly forces the capability to stop, confuse, disorient or momentarily deter a potential threat without use of deadly force.

Chemical/biological defense is a growing field of expertise at PBA. The Arsenal’s leadership in the field of protective mask fabrication, repair and recertification dates back to the late 1970s. Today, PBA is the Army’s sole facility for the repair and rebuild of the M17 series,
M9A1, M24, M25A1 and M40 masks as well as the M20 breathing apparatus. The Arsenal fabricates, fits, and tests chemical biological protective filters in various sizes and configurations.

CB Defense industrial capabilities at PBA include the manufacture of personnel and equipment decontamination kits; repair, renovation and testing of chemical protective clothing; and the rebuild and calibration of defensive chemical test equipment. Since the nation’s increased focus on homeland defense, PBA has initiated programs for the training of civilian first responders and providing CB Defense technical equipment assistance and training for local jurisdictions.

Come And See
May 10, 2011

“Can you tell me where I can find the lightbulbs?”

“Sure. Come with me, and I’ll take you to them.”

In many large stores, employees are instructed to take customers to find what they are looking for rather than simply giving them verbal directions. This common act of courtesy and walking alongside an inquiring person may help us expand our concept of what it means to lead others to Christ.

In John 1, the phrase “come and see” occurs twice. When two curious disciples of John the Baptist asked Jesus where He was staying, the Lord said, “Come and see” (v.39). After spending the day with Him, Andrew found his brother, Simon Peter, and brought him to Jesus (vv.40-41). Later, Philip told Nathanael he had found the Messiah. To Nathanael’s skeptical reply, Philip said, “Come and see” (v.46).

Witnessing for Christ can be a one-time event when we speak the good news about Him to others. But it may also involve walking alongside people who are seeking help and wholeness. Our genuine interest in their spiritual welfare, our prayers, and our involvement with them say without words, “Come and see. Let’s walk together, and I’ll take you to Him.”

The gospel has to be proclaimed,
Its truth we need to share;
But sometimes seekers also need
To see how much we care. —Sper

Kindness and compassion have led more people to Christ than proclamation alone.

Read: John 1:35-46

Come and see. —John 1:39
Bible in a year:
2 Kings 10-12; John 1:29-51

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!





Spc. Riley S. Spaulding, USA, 2nd Squadron, 2nd Stryker Cavalry Regiment, Died Afghanistan 4MAY2011



I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)


God Of Our Fathers



Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!
