            12-month options.                                  I’m proud of the SRNS team and I congratulate each of
            SRNS services include, but are not limited to,     you on earning this extension. I look forward to working
            environmental management cleanup, developing and   with you over the next few years and I’m optimistic about

        visits SRS tritium facilities, proposed SRPPF

        Vice Admiral Dave Kriete, Deputy Commander of U.S. Strategic Command, visited SRS to see some of the ways current
        and proposed SRNS missions support the nation’s nuclear deterrent. Vice Admiral Kriete toured the proposed Savannah
        River Plutonium Processing Facility (SRPPF), which NNSA has proposed for the production of plutonium pits needed for
        our nuclear deterrent. He also toured the Savannah River Tritium Enterprise, which since 1955 has been supporting
        the nation’s requirements related to tritium, the radioactive form of hydrogen. He also spent time talking with former
        submariners who now work at SRS.
