FE Warren 319th Missile Squadron

The 319th Missile Squadron is composed of approximately 90 officers and enlisted members. Five two-officer missile combat crews from the squadron deploy daily to man underground launch control centers, which are spread throughout 3,200 square miles in eastern Wyoming, western Nebraska and northern Colorado. These crews ensure proper configuration, security and maintenance of approximately 50 Minuteman III ICBMs assigned to the squadron. On-site enlisted squadron members who support the crew during their 24-hour alert tour include a facility manager, charged with maintaining the topside portion of the alert facility, and a chef, who prepares meals for the missile combat crew and any personnel visiting or assigned to the remote facility.
