Michael Locklear, of Pembroke, N.C., a finish painter with Wish and Wash Painting Co. of Laurinburg, N.C., carefully "cuts in" the frame of an original window of the historic Firestone Building, Sept. 1, 2010. The building, which over the years served as an auto repair shop under various concessionaires, is now undergoing renovation to serve as temporary work space to support the relocation of the headquarters elements of U.S. Army Forces Command and U.S. Reserve Command from Fort McPherson, Ga., to Fort Bragg, N.C. Working closely with the North Carolina State Historic Preservation Office, the U.S. Army and supporting contract firms are taking necessary measures to preserve the historic nature of the building.
