1. ENERGY EFFICIENCY:
The Army takes aim at the 'Pineapple Pentagon'
FORT SHAFTER, Hawaii -- Every morning, Col. Howard Killian makes his way past the "Pineapple Pentagon," three Army buildings that got their name when they were built in 1944, in just under 50 days, as a command center for the planned invasion of Japan. After 60 years, these and most of the other buildings on Fort Shafter have become leaky, creaky energy gobblers -- and Killian is leading a campaign to trim energy spending by "greening" the Army's old buildings and making new units energy efficient.
