The HIWRAP team has made arrangements to be in the AFRC 4840 hangar over the weekend. Teams are reminded that U.S. citizens must be COMSEC-briefed before coming to the hangar unescorted. An Armstrong employee must be the escort to those U.S. citizens who have not yet had the briefing. Foreign nationals always need an Armstrong employee as escort in the hangar.
