Army team destroys old chemical munitions
DOVER, Del. -- On the outskirts of a busy runway at Dover Air Force Base, a quiet, nondescript mobile operating center is nestled into an open field, not at all disturbed by the whirring engines overhead. The only indicator of life inside the fenced-in camp is a row of cars parked outside the gates and concrete barricades. Then there it is -- a flash of brightness.
Pops of neon green scatter across the field of view before disappearing into a large tan tent, mobile laboratory or trailer command center. They are the Chemical Biological Applications & Risk Reduction workforce, donned in new high visibility gear, walking to and from various points of interest as the reflective stripes on their shirts illuminate a cool, commanding presence.
