1956: Then Captain Carr participated in the construction of the Distant Early Warning (DEW) line in Alaska. His participation was with the 564 Transportation Company (Term Svc) on Project 572 West Area. WIKI: "From a standing start in December 1954, many thousands of people with countless skills were recruited, transported to the polar regions, housed, fed, and supplied with tools, machines, and materials to construct physical facilities - buildings, roads, tanks, towers, antennas, airfields, and hangars - at some of the most isolated places in North America. The construction project employed about 25,000 people.[2] Military and civilian airlifts, huge sealifts during the short summers, snowcat trains and barges distributed vast cargoes along the length of the Line to build the permanent settlements needed at each site. It was to military and naval units that fell much of the job of carrying mountains of supplies to the northern sites. More than 3,000 U.S. Army Transportation Corps soldiers were given special training to prepare them for the job of unloading ships in the Arctic. They went with the convoys of U.S. Navy ships and they raced time during the few weeks the ice was open to land supplies at dozens of spots on the Arctic Ocean shore during the summers of 1955, 56, and 57.[4]"
