Event description


Our November 14 meeting (11:30 am - 1 pm) will be on Contingency Engineering and feature:

  • Col J. David "Dave" Norton, USAF, from the Air Force Civl Engineer Center (AFCEC), who will provide us with an update on the Offutt AFB Flood Recovery Effort. Back in March 2019, more than 130 structures on the installation which houses the U.S. military's Strategic Command were damaged by the MIssouri River flooding. Floodwaters ran as deep as 9 feet and left behind toxic sludge.

  • Chris Kruzel also from AFCEC, who will provide us with an update on Lessons Learned from the African Construction Program.

As a follow-on to the meeting (approximately 2-4 pm), our Post will also have a tour of ther San Antonio River Authority (SARA) downtown flood control tunnel system. The tour will include the Olmos Dam area and Tunnel Inlet and Oulet Parks.

Since there is limited parking at some of the tunnel tour locations, we will be carpooling from the FSH Golf Course to the tour locations.

You can sign up for the tour with your meeting reservation OR you can just sign up for the Tunnel Tour only.

There is a special reduced rate of just $15/person for Post Young Members (YMs) and Post Enlisted Members who make reservations in advance (not applicable to late reservations or walk-ins).
