US Military Magazine Reviews UVGI

Arthur S. Hughes knows a thing or two about terrorism, national security and airborne pathogens. To start, he served in the Navy during the Vietnam era. Now he is a Master Sergeant in the National Guard's 128th Chemical Company and is a PA (Physician's Assistant). In his civilian life he works for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

So, when it comes to biodefense, he's got the credentials!

In the most recent issue of the journal Army Chemical Review, Master Sergeant Hughes provide a neat overview of what Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) is, and how it can help protect buildings from attack. To read the article, click here.

In researching this article, I discovered that the Army has several publications that are available for us civilians. The list is extensive and interesting, whether you're researching the latest in defense technology or interested in military history. In typical Army creative style, the library is called the Army Professional Writing Collection and can be found here.
