Missile site milestone

Posted: Monday, August 19, 2002

Iron workers Chad Morris, left, and Ian Miller, with Central Welding, tighten bolts as they construct one of the metal liners for the missile silos of the Ground-based Midcourse Defense Validation of Operational Concept test site Thursday afternoon at Fort Greeley. Work on the missile silos reached a milestone Thursday as the first corrugated metal liner was lowered into a concrete shaft just two months after ground was broken. The project is on schedule, according to the U.S. Missile Defense Agency.
