F.E. Warren named as location for Ground Based Strategic Deterrent

FRANCIS E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE – The Air Force plans to begin military construction activities as early as 2023 at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, as it moves forward in the process of replacing the aging Minuteman III ICBMs with the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent.

“This is an exciting announcement for our base and our community,” said Col. Peter Bonetti, 90th Missile Wing commander. “The GBSD will allow us to maintain a reliable, lasting deterrent against our adversaries and provide assurance to our allies.”
