* In 2002 Dr. Walp uncovered major crime, corruption and cover-ups at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, leading to the arrest of lab employees, the firing/reassignment of 19 high-level lab executive leaders and causing the federal government to create a bidding contract for oversight of the lab - the first time since the Manhattan Project began.

* In 2015-2016, Dr. Walp, in concert with Nuclear Watch of New Mexico, the Project on Government Oversight, and other individuals, have initiated a process requesting the United States Department of Justice reopen the FBI case at the Los Alamos lab. The request is to investigate an alleged suicide of a lab executive in January 2003. There was strong evidence at the scene of the death indicating it may not have been a suicide, and that the death may be related to the crime and corruption uncovered at the lab by Walp in 2002.
