Maxwell stimulus money

Following passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, several projects at Maxwell and Gunter are included in a Department of Defense report identifying "specific investments in construction, facility improvements, and energy efficiency projects that will help improve the quality of life for our troops and their families."

The Recovery Act will stimulate economic growth by creating millions of jobs through investments in infrastructure improvements and expanding energy research that will lead the way toward energy independence, the report said.

The report said the Defense infrastructure also will result in improved readiness to meet the national security challenges of the 21st century.

My Photo

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 

As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
