Army engineers remove World War II-era explosives from national historic landmark on a remote Alaskan island
To find unexploded ordnance from the Fort Glenn Formerly Used Defense Site, a field crew for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers initially conducted methodical surface sweeps of the land on Umnak Island in Alaska. Workers then used hand tools to extract munitions from the soil for consolidation into piles that were safely destroyed. For larger objects that were too dangerous to remove by hand, the team conducted detonations in place before removing remnants and debris. (U.S. Army Photo)
