CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Army, civilian and community officials at the Letterkenny Army Depot Wednesday morning officially opened the last of 19 missile system repair operations that have been transferred to the Franklin County, Pa., depot since 1995, a base spokesman said.
The transfer means another 10 jobs will remain on the base, said depot spokesman Allen Loessy.
Base Commander Col. Thomas W. Resau was joined by Lt. Col. Henry Turner Jr., chief of Weapons Systems Management, Redstone Arsenal, in welcoming the more than 60 employees, military personnel and Franklin County officials to the brief ceremony.
Letterkenny Army Depot, which opened on 25,000 acres during World War II, maintains armored equipment and missile systems for all services.
