~The FReeper Canteen Presents~

Road Trip: Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico

Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico, is in southeast Albuquerque, nestled between the Sandia and Manzano mountain ranges. It is home to the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center and its subordinate wings, the 498th Armament Systems Wing and the 377th Air Base Wing.

It is also home to the Defense Threat Reduction Agency Albuquerque office, the Air Force Safety Center, the Air Force Inspection Agency, the Air Force Operational Test and Evaluation Center, the 58th Special Operations Wing, Space Development and Test Wing, the New Mexico Air National Guard 150th Fighter Wing, the Directed Energy and Space Vehicle Directorates of the Air Force Research Laboratory, the Department of Energy Albuquerque Office, the National Nuclear Security Administration and Sandia National Laboratories.

In 1992, the Kirtland Underground Munitions Storage Complex (KUMSC) was activated at Kirtland AFB. KUMSC is the largest storage facility for nuclear weapons in the world. The facility provides storage, shipping and maintenance for the United States Air Force and Navy. It is operated by the 898th Munitions Squadron (898 MUNS) and the 377th Security Forces Squadron (377 SFS).

The facility is state of the art, with more than 300,000 square feet located entirely underground. Total number of deliverable nuclear warheads stored there is over 3,000. The majority of the munitions include the B83 and B61 gravity bombs, and W80, W87, and W88 warheads for the Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM), Minuteman III and Peacekeeper ICBM's.

Detachment 3 of The Air Force  Operational Test And Evaluation Center at Kirtland Air Force Base provides warfighters and decision makers timely, relevant, accurate information by evaluating the operational performance and capabilities of Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) weapons systems in the battlespace environment.

The Space Development and Test Wing develops, tests and evaluates Air Force space systems, executes advanced space development and demonstration projects, and rapidly transitions capabilities to the warfighter.

The Spacecraft Development Squadron provides spaceflight for DOD Space Test Program payloads, develops, integrates, tests and launches experimental technologies and prototypical space systems. The Responsive Satellite Command and Control Division develops, integrates, tests, fields and maintains telemetry, tracking and control systems, data processing and distribution systems and operations support equipment for experimental and prototypical spacecraft and other unique spacecraft.

Learn More About Kirtland Air Force Base HERE!

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is the nation’s only congressionally chartered museum in its field and an intriguing place to learn the story of the Atomic Age, from early research of nuclear development through today’s peaceful uses of nuclear technology.

Originally known as the National Atomic Museum, it was established in 1969 on Kirtland Air Force Base before moving to Old Town Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Grace-Filled Waiting

December 27, 2011

Roger lost his job due to the company being downsized. For months he searched, applied for jobs, prayed, asked others to pray, and trusted God. Roger and his wife Jerrie’s emotions fluctuated though. They saw God provide for them in unexpected ways and experienced His grace, but sometimes they worried that a job would never come. For 15 long months, they waited.

Then Roger had three interviews with a company, and a week later the employment agency called and said, “Have you heard the saying, ‘Sometimes clouds have a silver lining’? Well, you’ve got the job!” Jerrie told me later, “We wouldn’t trade this hard experience for anything. It brought us closer together and closer to the Lord.” Friends who had prayed rejoiced and gave thanks to God.

Paul wanted the Corinthian church to see the grace of God at work in his life, which could cause “thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God” (2 Cor. 4:15). His trials were so severe that he was “hard pressed on every side,” “perplexed,” “persecuted,” and “struck down” (vv.8-9). Yet he encouraged the people not to lose heart in troubles (v.16) but to trust God. During our difficulties, we can be drawn nearer to God and others, as Roger and Jerrie experienced, and praise will go to the Lord for His grace.

Thank the Lord when trouble comes,
His love and grace expressing;
Grateful praise releases faith,
Turns trials into blessing. —Egner

There’s no better time to praise God than right now.

Read: 2 Corinthians 4:7-18

We do not lose heart. —2 Corinthians 4:16
Bible in a year:
Zechariah 1-4; Revelation 18

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is no longer in Old Town (the stinkin’ hippies hated it) and is on Eubank Blvd. north of Central Ave (Old Rt.66 of song and legend). The guides are mostly retired Sandia Labs personnel who are old nuke guys.

Anyone who needs info about Albuquerque, feel free to FReepmail me.

I can’t get you into the KUMSC (although it is very cool), I’d be glad to tell you about some of the cool stuff (unclassified) going on out at KAFB and Sandia.

Good evening, Kathy! (((hugs)))

The snow is just about history! It got up to 48 or so today
and it’s just about melted. It was nice while it lasted and
did make for a magical Christmas for us.

Glad you enjoyed the picture. Sticking my head out the front
door to take it was as close to going out in it as it came. LOL!

Way cool photos. Thanks for sharing them with us. We're expecting 1-3 inches of snow overnight. It's okay, got nowhere to go and cookies to bake.

Came across this article tonight. It appears Australia is looking overseas for troops:

WELCOME TO THE

FR CANTEEN
(where our troops, allies and their families can refresh themselves)

Good morning, Everyone.

Good morning to our
AWESOME
Military, our Allies, and their families.

Thank you, Lauren, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.
Oh yeah, some place warmer today.

Our local DC Metroland weather report

~ Today...Showers early with a steady rain developing for the afternoon.
The rain will be heavy at times.
Thunder possible. High 52F.
Winds SSE at 10 to 20 mph.
Rainfall possibly over one inch.

~ Tonight... Partly cloudy. Low 38F. Winds WSW at 10 to 20 mph.

Good thing I have chores to do inside.
Looks like our FRiends in the New England states
need to brace for another hit.

We'll just get rain and winds in our area.

Geez, the weekend went fast.
Hope everyone had a wonderful and special Christmas.

The Beachy house did.
We got to see all of the children and grandchildren...
... at the same time. LOL

Well, hubby is back to work this morning
and I have some winter chores to do.
I guess I'll need to get on those early
in case we lose power when the storm hits.

I need to get to my rounds.
But, you stay right where you are. Keep your eyes on your monitor. Cause...............I'll be bock

Now remember, the Canteen is ALWAYS

Come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee, pancakes, conversation, silliness,
and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM

DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above. Honoring those who have served before.
