Our Nation is outfitted with the best military forces. To ensure a strong future for generations to come, Congress has appropriated $90 billion toward the modernization of three missile bases. The overhaul will place a new weapon system online called Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (G.B.S.D.). The greater Cheyenne area is home to F.E. Warren Air Force Base, the premier military installation specializing in fulfilling the nuclear triad mission, and one of the primary sites being upgraded in the coming years.
Nuclear deterrence has a long-standing history in our Nation's ability to serve and protect. F.E. Warren Air Force Base plays an integral role as the home to the 90th Missile Wing, one of only three land-based nuclear deterrence bases in the nation.
This kind of investment will impact generations to come. Advancements in the local military can bring additional economic development and growth to the community. It is time to plan and be ready for it.
