||At the Ranch it is:
Honoring the legacy of the men and women at Groom Lake and on the NASA High Range in Nevada the battleground of the Cold War. This site is dedicated to the memories of our band of brothers, especially those we lost in the CIA U-2 and A-12 Projects Aquatone and OXCART at Groom Lake, during Operation Black Shield at Kadena, Okinawa, and on the NASA High Range.
"For it is the lot of some men to be assigned duties about which they may not speak. Such work is not for every man. But those who accept the burdens implicit in this silent labor realize a camaraderie and sense of value known to few. These memories cannot be stolen. They will last always, untarnished, ever better."
Col. Larry McClain, Former Commander at Groom Lake
