While January is often referred to as Resolution Month, it is also known for its slew of award-winning movies playing at theaters. You see, the Oscars are right around the corner. One such movie is turning some heads is “Lone Survivor.”
The film, starring Mark Wahlberg, tells the story of four SEAL teammates sent on a mission to capture and/or kill Taliban leader Ahmad Shah, and is expected to do very well at the box office. It is sure to be a stirring story of bravery and courage, and we are excited to see it. You may be asking yourself, why are they talking about this movie?
Well, at Construction Protection Systems, we are very proud of our armed forces and do our best to support the troops. Both of our Owners come from a long tradition of military service and one is a Vietnam veteran. We have worked with the U.S. government and military on many construction projects.
Among them is the Command & Control HQ Facility in Fort Bliss, TX. This eco-friendly facility is truly state of the art, as it was designed and built to LEED Gold Standard, and includes such things as enhanced solar controls, an ecolite wall paneling system and integrated recycling facility. It is one of the centerpieces of Fort Bliss, which is home to the 1st Armored Division.
In addition to headquartering the 1st Armored Division, Fort Bliss also contributes close to $2 billion to the economy of Central El Paso and Northeast El Paso. This being the case, the Command & Control HQ Facility helps the entire region run a bit more smoothly, all while being an essential cog in U.S. military operations.
If you have any questions about the Command & Control HQ Facility or any of our other projects, contact Construction Protection Systems through our website www.1213doorshield.com.
