Weapons Incinerator Reaches Milestone
(2007-03-09)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Workers at the Anniston Army Depot's chemical weapons incinerator reached a milestone Thursday night. They destroyed the last of the more than 35-thousand V-X filled M-55 rockets - its a process that began last July.

The Army considered the nerve agent the most dangerous munition stored at the facility.

The Anniston incinerator will now be set up to destroy other chemical weapons. The project is expected to start this summer.

The Anniston facility began destroying chemical weapons in 2003 and has operated for ten (m) million work hours without any employees injured.
