Orville F. Hill, a nuclear chemist and the grandfather of U.S. Air Force Col. Aeneas Gooding, conducts radiation measurements at a research facility in New Mexico. Trinity Tavern: a testament to Team Whiteman
This week we will be renaming one of the lounges at the Mission’s End club the “Trinity Tavern.” After much consideration of the many suggestions you have provided over the past few weeks, base leadership decided on the name “Trinity,” which was submitted by Tech. Sgt. Joshua White, as it is a perfect reflection of the roots of our nuclear mission. I hope you will have the opportunity to visit in the coming weeks, and you will see that our team has worked hard to turn this lounge into something that not only reflects the rich heritage of the 509th Bomb Wing, but also the many diverse units that make up this incredible installation. We will continue to personalize it while making it a place where we can focus on our heritage.
