at Ground Zero

The priest is 80-years-old, and the bright yellow shirt is a birthday gift.

For more than three decades, Bill "Bix" Bichsel has come to the Trident submarine base at Bangor to protest its stockpile of nuclear weapons. This location is referred to as "Ground Zero" by some because, 20 miles from Seattle, it houses the largest quantity of nuclear weapons in the Western Hemisphere.
