Updated the Captions material for Slide Show photos "wingate_03.jpg" on Slide Show Redstone Tests and Derivatives Folder Page 4, and "wingate_04.jpg" on Redstone Tests and Derivatives Folder Page 5.

The two photos are of Block I Redstone missile CC-1009 being prepared for launch at ALA -3 White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico on 15 August 1961 by B Battery, 1st Missile Battalion, 333rd Artillery, 40th Artillery Group conducting the Battery's Annual Service Practice (ASP) firing.

Installed a replacemen video link to replace a deleted YouTube video of the US Army's popular 1950s television series "The Big Picture" episode titled "Audie Murphy in Broken Bridge", with Audie Murphy being shown a 40th Artillery Group Redstone missile in 1960 by Colonel Joseph Harrison, 40th Artillery Group Commanding Officer, near the bottom of Page 16 Appendix D: Redstone Missile Videos. The video can be viewed in full screen mode. I also have the video set to start at the 13 minute 16 second mark.
