BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. – Pat Cartwright, Sauer Inc. regional vice president; Darin Bailey, NAVFAC southeast resident engineer; Maj. Gen. Floyd Carpenter, Eighth Air Force commander; Mayor Lorenz Walker, Bossier City, La., mayor; and Col. Timothy Fay, 2nd Bomb Wing commander, shovel the ceremonial first mound of dirt signifying groundbreaking ceremony on the $25 million renovation to the new Eighth Air Force Headquarters building on Barksdale Air Force Base Oct. 4. The renovation project covers more than 77,000 square feet of office space. Once completed, the headquarters will be equipped with the modern, state-of-the-art communications and information security systems needed to support one of our nation’s most important missions – the mission of nuclear deterrence and global strike operations.
