FReeper Canteen ~ Road Trip: White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico ~ 21 JAN 2014
Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The World !! | laurenmarlowe

~The FReeper Canteen Presents~

Road Trip: White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico

White Sands Missile Range is a rocket range of almost 3,200 square miles area, the largest military installation in the United States. WSMR includes the Oscura Range and the WSMR Otera Mesa bombing range. WSMR and the 600,000-acre Fort Bliss Range Complex to the south form a contiguous swath of territory for military testing.

White Sands Missile Range is a Test and Evaluation Command Installation operated primarily for the support of research, development, test, and evaluation of weapon and space systems, subsystems, and components.

WSMR, established in 1945, is the largest all-overland test range in the Western Hemisphere, and is the Department of the Army's largest installation, covering approximately 2.2 million acres. With the addition of several extension areas, the range can be expanded to nearly four million acres for certain types of testing. WSMR is bordered by Fort Bliss to the south and by Holloman Air Force Base to the west.

White Sands is poised to meet the many challenges that 21st century technological advancements, acquisition reform, and force transformation will present to the Acquisition Test and Evaluation community, private industry, and research laboratories (both domestic and international).

White Sands is leading the way for distributed testing of Joint capabilities. They are focusing on integrating complex Joint capabilities into a cohesive environment that will merge live and simulated operations across many geographically-separated test ranges. White Sands continues to offer a world class Range Control facility, state of the art launch complexes, and extensive environmental test facilities and laboratories.

Learn More About White Sands Missile Range And The Army Garrison HERE!!


White Sands Missile Range Historical Foundation was organized to support the White Sands Missile Range Museum and to raise money for a permanent museum to collect and exhibit the artifacts necessary to memorialize the events, and the participants, both individual and organizational who have contributed to the outstanding achievements at White Sands Missile Range.

At the White Sands Missile Range Museum you can trace the origin of America's missile and space activity, find out how the atomic age began and learn about the accomplishments of scientists like Dr. Wernher von Braun and Dr. Clyde Tombaugh at White Sands. Displays also include the prehistoric cultures and the rip-roaring Old West found in southern New Mexico. Pictured Above is Missile Park.

In Harmony

January 21, 2014

Read: 1 Peter 4:7-11

As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. —1 Peter 4:10
Bible in a Year:
Exodus 1-3; Matthew 14:1-21

I love playing the 5-string banjo. But it has one drawback. The fifth string will harmonize with only a limited number of simple chords. When other musicians want to play more complicated music, the banjoist has to adapt. He can lend marvelous melodic tones to a jam session only by making the right adjustments.

Just as musicians adjust with their instruments, we as believers also need to make adjustments with our spiritual gifts if we want to harmonize with others to serve God. For instance, those who have the gift of teaching must coordinate with those who have the gift of organizing meetings and with those who make sure meeting rooms are set up and cleaned. All of us have spiritual gifts, and we must work together if God’s work is to get done.

The apostle Peter said, “As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God” (1 Peter 4:10). Stewardship requires cooperation. Think about your spiritual gifts (Rom. 12; 1 Cor. 12; Eph. 4; 1 Peter 4). Now reflect on how you can dovetail their use with the gifts of other believers. When our talents are used in a complementary way, the result is harmony and glory to God.

Without a note we sing in tune,
An anthem loud we bring,
When willingly we give our gifts
Of labor to our King. —Branon
Keeping in tune with Christ keeps harmony in the church.

I used to live just down the road from White Sands.

There is a tiny office there for soldiers to get their driver license and plates...but if you know where it is anyone can use it.... much faster than waiting in line at a DMV office :-)

Got to mess around with an old V2 rocket there...way cool.

The Bataan Memorial Death March is held there each spring. It is the finest athletic event I have ever participated in.

Honors given to those men who fought, died or survived the Japanese invasion of the Philippines in WWII.

If you ever get a chance, participate.

Right now we’re running a 106F and tomorrow we’re looking at 107F. Well by Saturday (here) it’ll drop to 96F with rain. Should be fun running around in it in our bathing suits. Yes, we’re goofy.

Went through Advanced Infantry Training (AIT) as a Nike Herc radarman at Fort Bliss. Went back for SNAP (Short Notice Annual Practice).

We called ourselves Chairborne Rangers ‘cause we mostly pulled equipment checks and trained in the radar vans, unless we were on guard duty or KP.

To: All

If you’re an active duty or reservist airman at Hill Air Force and you’re planning to travel by plane, you can now step to the front of the line.

Pentagon and Transportation Security Administration officials recently announced that all U.S. Department of Defense service members will be eligible for expedited pre-flight screening at airports — which means they’ll be able to get into an express line where they don’t need to remove their shoes and belts or take laptops, iPads or liquids out of their baggage.

The new policy is effective immediately, but troops must use their DoD identification number when making flight reservations in order to get the expedited service.

Once a service member books an airline ticket, the airline sends the ID number and other pertinent information to TSA’s Secure Flight office, a program that maintains a criminal and terrorist watch list.

Troops will not be required to be in uniform for the service, but will be given a special boarding pass that allows them to get into the expedited, pre-flight line.

The expedited screening will be available to all members of the Armed Forces, including the Coast Guard and members of the National Guard and Reserves. Not eligible are personnel in the Individual Ready Reserve, military retirees and DoD civilians. Non-military spouses and children over the age of 12 are not eligible for the program either.

Mary Snavely-Dixon, director, of the Defense Manpower Data Center, said the DoD is working with the TSA to expand the program further.

TSA Deputy Administrator John W. Halinski, a 25-year Marine Corps veteran, said the TSA will continue to incorporate random and unpredictable security measures throughout airports and no individual will be guaranteed expedited screening.

TSA already has a program available for injured and wounded service members to make air travel as simple as possible. That program includes personalized service and expedited screening to move through security checkpoints without having to take off footwear, light outerwear, jackets or headgear.

SEATTLE CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY

WINTER FESTIVAL

JANUARY 24 THRU FEBRUARY 2

There will be six concerts in this series, all of which will be broadcast by Seattle’s classical radio KING-FM. Thanks to the miracle of the Internet, these concerts will be available live at the KING-FM website, and on concert nights I will lay out the schedule and provide a link to the concert. Chamber music can put a little light into people’s lives.

I’ll provide insights into the musicians if I happen to know them. I’ll also give a preview of the pieces to be played.

Friday night’s performance features a chamber work by Antonin Dvorak, the String Quintet in G, Op. 77, that is not heard all that often. In spite of the high opus number, it’s not a late piece. When colleague Jo Brahms hooked Tony Dvorak up with publisher Fritz Simrock, young Fritz told Tony that people would not take a composer seriously if his opus numbers were under 50. As a result, Fritz added 50 to the opus number of every Dvorak piece that the Simrock firm published. This has caused a lot of confusion over the years.

A string quartet consists of two violins, a viola and a cello. Usually, a string quintet adds a second viola, but here Tony makes the fifth instrument a string bass. That adds a totally different sonority to the piece.

The violinist on Friday night is James Ehnes. Now that Itzhak Perlman is semi-retired, Jimmy is a contestant for the title of World’s Greatest Classical Violinist. He took over the reins as Artistic Director of the Seattle Chamber Music Society from Toby Saks a few years ago. Toby died in September after a short bout with pancreatic cancer, so she timed the move well. Jimmy is also the first violinist of the Ehnes String Quartet, an entity in whose formation I played a role. The story of how I became the Forrest Gump of classical music is slated for next week.

The violist is Richard O’Neill, the greatest violist in the game today. Richard looks Asian because his mother was Korean, so it’s fun to watch people react to the conflict between Rich’s name and his appearance. I joke with him about the untold story of the Korean conquest of Ireland. “Ah, twas a foine battle until the Koreans opened up the beer. Twas all over in but a minute after that. They had their arms around each other signing Korean drinking songs.” Rich is the violist with the Ehnes String Quartet.

The cellist is Bion Tsang, who is one of my favorite cellists. He appears regularly in Seattle and has written his own arrangements for cello of popular pieces written for other instruments. “Why should they have all the fun?” was his comment when I asked him about it.

This is a video of five Egyptians who play for the orchestra in Qatar. Throughout the 20th Century, it was Jewish musicians who were the typical over-achievers in the realm of classical music. Over the past 20 years, the Chinese and Koreans have become the latest in classical music over-achievers. Now the Arabs are entering the game. Competition is good; it keeps your edge honed nice and sharp.

SEATTLE CHAMBER MUSIC SOCIETY

WINTER FESTIVAL

JANUARY 24 THRU FEBRUARY 2

Franz Joseph Haydn wrote 104 trios for piano, violin and cello, making him the inventor of this genre. The cello in a Haydn trio backs the piano in a harmonic imitation of the harpsichord continuo role from the Baroque era, so cellists don’t get all that excited about playing a Haydn trio. These trios are sensible music for sensible people, and each of them is a little gem. Saturday night’s opener is Haydn’s Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano in C, Hob. XV:27.

This video is a performance of the Trio Gaspard from the Joseph Joachim Chamber Music Competition in Weimar, Germany. Look at the sheer joy and exuberance these people experience in playing this piece. These folks won first prize. The pianist is Chinese, the violinist is Polish, and the cellist is an American whose parents must have been hippies. Check out her full name. Catch the improvisation on the piano at 13:17; Haydn just provides a fermata in the score and tells the pianist to ad lib.

This is just the education part. The actual concerts are Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I’ll be posting links to the live concerts on those days.
