KWAJALEIN ATOLL, RMI - After several weeks of coordination, a team of senior enlisted non-commissioned officers from the United States Strategic Command, United States Space and Strategic Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command, Naval Network Warfare Command, and 1st Space Brigade visited U.S. Army Kwajalein Atoll/Reagan Test Site July 28 and 29, 2009.
