MOWW News:

The MG Miles Chapter of the Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) will hold its next meeting on Zoom Tuesday, Nov. 16 on Zoom.   

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. with a brief business meeting followed by a presentation by Rizwan Ali, director of the National Security Research Center (NSRC) at Los Alamos National Laboratory. He will discuss what the National Security Research Center is and why is it critical to LANL’s mission.

Photos of weapons tests. Blueprints of engineering drawings. Data for plutonium pit production. These records – and tens of millions more – make up the collections of the National Security Research Center.

The NSRC is the classified library at LANL and houses nearly 80 years’ worth of the nation’s most-comprehensive collection of national security material. It traces its lineage to the Technical Library formed by J. Robert Oppenheimer in 1943 as part of the Manhattan Project. 

The MOWW meetings are open to interested citizens with RSVP at no cost. Contact LTC Gregg Giesler at 505.662.5574 or to get Zoom meeting information.
