The ceremony begins at 10 a.m. and will include several military officials, the mayor of Sunnyvale and state Assembly member Paul Fong. It will be held on R.T. Jones Road, just north of the main gate at Moffett Field.

But Nothing about a new Base Exchange and Commissary at Moffett..

At Moffett Field The Bay Area Congressional Delegation needs to make a Base Exchange/Commissary combination their FIRST priority. The Bay Area Congressional Delegation needs to ask why is DeCA not getting assistance in securing land on/at Moffett Field. The Bay Area Congressional Delegation needs to ask NASA, Army, Navy and Air Force – WHY?

Tear up a historical site i.e., HANGER ONE but give the Army 270,000-square-foot facility on 39 acres..

It would be nice if The Bay Area Congressional Delegation *CARED*
