Russ:
On behalf of the Indiana Military Museum I want to thank the TAC Missileers for the donation toward the restoration of the “Wildwood Mace”. The weather here in Indiana has held up longer than expected so myself and Missileers Jerry Brenner and Max Butler have had additional time to do work that was not expected before the bad weather set in. Everything but the main fuselage is now primed and has the first coat of white on it. The main fuselage which is repaired and primed has been moved inside our storage/work building. Here are some pictures.

Russ,
Here are a few pictures you might add to the web site. One is Max Butler giving the $1,000 check to Jim Osborne of the Indiana Military Museum, Max getting to work on the tail of the missile, the warhead and nose in an upright position, and a picture of the three of us after a day of painting.
