Kirtland Air Force Base:

Kirtland AFB would like to welcome you to New Mexico, the “Land of Enchantment.”

Kirtland AFB is the third largest installation in the Air Force Material Command (AFMC). The base occupies over 52,000 acres and employs about 22,280 people.

Albuquerque is considered a lower cost area to reside in than the east or west coast.

The sun shines more than 300 days a year in Albuquerque creating weather that is ideal for any outdoor activity.

 

  • From the Albuquerque Tribune, 2007: Schmidly: No weapons research at the University of New Mexico
  • From a flyer, date unknown, of the Kirtland Partnership Committee. Shows how the elites of Albuquerque are tied with the Military-Industrial Complex:

    “A non-profit organization of civic leaders formed in 1996 for the purpose of preserving and growing Kirtland Air Force Base. The KPC has no official ties to the base, and recognizes that Kirtland Air Force Base organzations and commanders must remain mission-oriented. The KPC obtains only the factual information concerning the base and its missions that is available to the public.” http://www.kpc.nm.org (address on flyer).

About elloborojo

Okay, as the subtitle states, this is a notebook from what I call a New Mexico diaspora (look up diaspora if you are asking). I was a former resident of New Mexico, now living elsewhere, but New Mexico is still my homeland. To get more in touch with your homeland one must be away from it. This is my attempt to understand it. I was a former anti-militarism activist in the Albuquerque area. Still believe that United Snakes militarism is the greatest threat to the world, as do the majority of the worlds population. Uncovered much information about the ties in New Mexico, but never processed it all. This blog is an attempt to do that. Also hope it may come of use to others with similar interests.
