Charles D. Maynard Lock and Dam (L&D 5)
AR, UNITED STATES
The Charles D. Maynard Lock and Dam, or Lock and Dam No. 5 is located at Navigation Mile 86.3 and began operating in 1968. Legislation (HR 781) passed in the Senate on June 24, 2008, after being passed in the House of Representatives on July 17, 2007, renamed Lock and Dam No. 5 of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System to the “Colonel Charles D. Maynard Lock and Dam” in honor of Colonel Maynard.
“Colonel Maynard was a great asset to the Corps of Engineers, as well as to this country,” Senator Inhofe said of the legislation he supported. “Maynard led the planning, design, and construction of 13 locks and dams of the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, which at the time was the largest civil works project ever undertaken by the Corps. This system serves many water resource purposes, including clean energy from hydroelectric power, navigation for all types of industries, recreation, and many others that are essential to Oklahoma and to our nation.

Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
