Ranger at Minuteman Missile NHS

Our visit was in mid-June, 2021. I feel embarrassed that I cannot remember the name of this ranger/educator. He was entering the facility to give his first presentation on the Minuteman Missiles, there were no tickets available for his talk. We gently ambushed him at the gate and were given a "lifelong memory" brief of his history, as a young military man assigned to this site, and the past and current status of the Minuteman Missile program. He kindly allowed us to snap pictures of him and the picture of him as a young guy in uniform.
