As we mentioned in Part 1 of our series, the Cold War era meeting minutes from the top secret government relocation site known as Mount Weather (aka The Special Facility, aka High Point, aka the Classified Location) are mind-numbingly routine. Indeed, these notes are probably as stultifying as your last corporate conference call. In short, when we happened upon these documents at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library, we were hoping for Seven Days in May but what we got was Office Space. And just as we did in Part 1, we have combed through the bureaucratic dross to find a few noteworthy highlights. In other words, we read the entire document so you wouldn’t have to. It is, however, embedded at the end of this post in case you want to read the whole thing. So without further delay, here are the gems.

The year began with the promise of more dining options.

In the minutes for the February 12, 1965 meeting, it was announced that the phrase “DEFCON 4” would not be used at the facility, but rather the less alarming advisory to “monitor news broadcasts/telecasts” would be deployed. Note: FAR stands for Federal Agency Representatives (i.e. the people attending the weekly meeting at the Special Facility) and CINCONAD stands for Commander in Chief, Continental Air Defense Command.


The February 12th minutes also featured an inside (?) joke about syndicated newspaper columnist Drew Pearson and rabbits. Hmmm.


March brought news of an exciting new training tape about brainwashing in Korea.


The April 16th notes revealed that Mount Weather has a firing range…

…And that food services had attained “a very high level of compliance with regulations.” Leftover business from 1964 regarding a site barbershop was also raised.

The June 18th minutes announced a dance at the American Legion hall in Berryville, Virginia.


The July 2nd notes previewed an upcoming briefing on “Censorship Plans.”


The July 23rd minutes announced, among other things, a farewell party for U.S. Army Interagency Communications Agency (USAICA) official Colonel Bruce Caron. The party was to be broadcast live over the facility’s closed circuit channel 2.


The August 6th minutes included mention of “emergency Chaplain replacement.”

The August 20th notes promised an investigation into the matter of “speeding carts” in the corridors of the Special Facility.

The August 27th minutes announced the company picnic (?).


October brought “constructive” criticism of the cafeteria.

The year ended on a high note with congratulations to the Mount Weather team for their handling of the Northeast Blackout of November 9th.

Olahan seafood ciri khas Vanuatu yang pantas buat kamu coba setelah itu Coconut Fish Curry atau kari ikan kelapa. Makanan ciri khas Vanuatu yang ini terbagi dalam potongan ikan, lemon, cream kelapa, merica dan garam. Sama dengan Citrus Baked Fish with Coconut Krim, hidangan ini dibuat dengan dibakar, perbedaannya hidangan ini tidak memakai jeruk dan lemon.

Beberapa bahan tesebut selanjutnya dibuntel rapat dalam daun pisang dan dibakar sampai daging ikan empuk dan lepas dari tulangnya. Hidangan ini juga bisa dicicipi dengan nasi atau salad.

I believe this will help your website become more organized because you have decided to set a part on this site for the inquiries regarding tax and as well as the helpful discussions. To be honest, this is one of the few sites that are doing this kind of strategy. Also, I think that this essay writing help will not only benefit your clients or the potential ones but you most especially because you will be able to see the questions easier.

Firefox offers a more simplified interface and quicker download speeds than Internet Explorer, the most widely used Web browser. Mozilla Firefox can have an issue with the browser files if Firefox is not responding. This issue may also be brought on by low memory due to an excessive number of open tabs. Choose Task Manager by performing a right-click or Ctrl+Shift+Esc on a space on the Windows taskbar. When the Windows Task Manager displays, choose the Processes tab after that. Click End Process after selecting the item for firefox.exe. Select Yes when the "Task Manager Warning" dialogue box displays.
