USAF AFSC 463 Nuclear Weapons Technician School

In 1972 this was the then brand-new academy for advanced "mushroom stuffing." The older location, located at the other end of the base, had been found to be extremely susceptible to focussed laser beam long-range audio eavesdropping (spying), thus the lack of windows in this facility. The explosives component of our training took place far out on the prairie, most likely because of the loud noises involved! This picture was taken on a clear day, often the pollution produced by the city of Denver would completely obscure the view of the Rocky Mountains.
