Thornton "TD" Barnes began his unique career in the US Army, where he specialized in surface-to-air missiles and participated in several CIA projects. During the course of his military career Barnes was awarded numerous missileman awards and was selected to attend Artillery Officer Candidate School in preparation for adviser duty in Vietnam. Honorably discharged from the Army, Barnes was recruited for an electronics engineer position at the Beatty station of the NASA High Range for flight testing. He was next recruited to Groom Lake, Nevada as part of the most highly classified special projects team since the atomic bomb Manhattan Project.
Cleared at both "Q" and "Top Secret" security levels at the Groom Lake facility, Barnes operated under a code name. He served as cadre for ultra secret projects of many agencies including the CIA, National Defense Agency and the Air Tactical Command, most of which remains classified today. Now retired, Barnes is active with the Disabled American Veterans and numerous military and aerospace organizations and activities. He is currently the Director of the Nevada Aerospace Hall of Fame and serves as president of Roadrunners Internationale, an association of the CIA, Air Force, and aerospace companies who built and flew the CIA's early U-2 and A-12 Blackbird. As leader of the Roadrunners he has made the recording of the individual legacies a priority project with the UNLV Cold War Oral History Project and the Library of Congress. Since declassification of some of the projects in which he participated with the U.S. Air Force and CIA, Barnes has participated in symposium panels and been a guest speaker telling the previously untold story of these secret heroes of the Cold War.
