I second this change shown below. (Al Kerecman) For last line of citation, suggest "This achievement marked the beginning of. . . ."

Advocate's support to this Milestone -- Apyuste (talk) 10:35, 23 July 2018 (UTC)

As an advocate to this Milestone proposal, after reviewing all submitted materials and receiving the reports from two experts: Prof. Magdalena Salazar Palma and Prof. Jin-Fa Lee, both representatives of the history area in the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, I am clearly in favour of this Milestone and, as a consequence, I support it to be moved for discussion and approval to the IEEE History Committee.

This Milestone truly represents a significant achievement in the history of communications technology. The proposal is adequately described and supported by the references cited. The citation wording is concise and quite clear about the significance of the achievement being claimed. Consequently, to my point of view, it very much deserves to become an IEEE Milestone.

Next, the reports coming from the two experts are linked:

I just would like to thank the advocate and the two experts who agree that this event clearly deserves to be a recipient of an IEEE Milestone. The gentlemen of the United States Army, who have all passed, utilized technological remains from the aftermath of World War II and turned them into a new beginning for science and technology to move beyond earth. Those of us who followed these forward looking engineers and scientists are truly indebted to them for creating a clear path upon which to build the solid state and digital revolutions that empowered our exploration in, and of, space.

Review of Milestone -- Jason.k.hui (talk) 23:57, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

I have reviewed the citation and support the Milestone. I suggest that "USA" be removed as it's not necessary.

I fully support this milestone. Additional information is available in Pettengill, G. H. & Shapiro, I. I., Radar Astronomy, Annual Review of Astronomy and Astrophysics, vol. 3, p.377. Dave Bart

As the majority of the IEEE Milestones come from USA, to American’s eyes, the term “USA” might really seem unnecessary. However, by considering the Milestones Program as a global target initiative, I consider not any useless for it to be included.
