It was a pleasure to take the Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee Chairman, Congressman Joe Wilson of South Carolina on a tour of our local defense installations last week. One of the stops we made was a NORAD/NORTHCOM on Peterson AFB. This was of particular note to Chairman Wilson as the ETC Subcommittee, "is responsible for overseeing counter-terrorism programs and initiatives and counterproliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Additionally, this subcommittee oversees U.S. Special Operations Forces, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), information technology and programs, force protection policy and oversight, and related intelligence support. It makes sure that our nation is protected against terrorist attacks and unconventional threats."
Thank you to El Pomar Foundation Chairman and CEO Bill Hybl for the invitation to attend the Milton E. Proby Cultural Heritage Room Induction Ceremony for 2015 Inductee Ernest House Sr. Ernest House Sr. (1945-2011) served 31 years for the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe as both Chairman and Councilman, and was one of the longest serving elected Tribal officials. A member of the Weeminuche Band and grandson of Chief Jack House, the Tribe’s last hereditary Chief, House Sr. was well known for his deep knowledge of Ute history. Born and raised in Mancos Canyon on the Ute Mountain Ute reservation in southwestern Colorado, former Chairman House was a veteran of the Colorado Army National Guard, Special Forces Airborne Group. House’s leadership was defined by collaboration and communication with tribal, local, state, and federal officials. Throughout his tenure, he advocated for tribal enterprise and helped develop tribal health facilities and initiatives in Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico. Under his leadership, the Dolores Water Project (1987) and Animas La Plata Water Project (2009) were completed, guaranteeing water to the Ute Mountain Ute and Southern Ute Indian tribes. House worked for the Bureau of Indian Affairs and National Park Service under the U.S. Department of the Interior and was instrumental in the implementation of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act in Colorado, ensuring Native American remains and funerary objects are cared for and returned to Tribes.
