Welcome to SSW!
Hard to believe it has been a year already. One year ago yesterday I walked out the door of the station and retired from full time police work. I did go back a few weeks later for an awards ceremony, note the word "Retired" at the bottom of the patch on my uniform. One of my trainees snapped this picture.
Great Pic! I am sure time has probably flown by in the last year. I have alot of retired friends that keep telling me "we don't know how we had time to work!" Congrats on the 1 year anniversary May you enjoy many years to come!

I'm a Fire Captain for the DOE in Oak Ridge, TN at the Y-12 National Security Complex. I've been in the fire service since 1981.
Paul, what's Y-12 national security complex?
Chief, welcome to SSW!
If I told you, I'd have to kill you. Originally it's where the US enriched the uranium for the first atomic bomb used in WW II. It has had other related missions over the years. Or to quote from the public website.
"The Y‑12 National Security Complex is a premier manufacturing facility dedicated to making our nation and the world a safer place and plays a vital role in the Department of Energy’s Nuclear Security Enterprise.
Y‑12 helps ensure a safe and effective U.S. nuclear weapons deterrent. We also retrieve and store nuclear materials, fuel the nation’s naval reactors, and perform complementary work for other government and private-sector entities.
Since 1943, Y‑12 has played a key role in strengthening our country’s national security and reducing the global threat from weapons of mass destruction.
Y‑12 has evolved to become the complex the nation looks to for support in protecting America's future, developing innovative solutions in manufacturing technologies, prototyping, safeguards and security, technical computing and environmental stewardship."
So it's a facility that handles all or most aspects of nuclear material. Sounds like you've had to have a lot of special training.
You could say that, there are some special things we need to know out there.
