    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.

We will continue to personalize it while making it a place where we can focus on our heritage.
