  • F.E. Warren AFB Cheyenne

  • Francis E. Warren Air Force Base is located in Laramie County, near Cheyenne, Wyoming. The base is home to the 90th Missile Wing of the Air Force Global Strike Command. This unit is tasked with operating the LGM-30 Minuteman missiles and its facilities in Northern Colorado, Southern Wyoming, and Western Nebraska. Warren AFB was originally under the control of the Army in honor of Brigadier General David A. Russell. When control of the base was transferred to the United States Air Force, the base adopted its current name after the first senator from Wyoming, Francis Enroy Warren. Warren was a recipient of the Medal of Honor when he was 19 while fighting in the Civil War. The base is the oldest active military facility of the Air Force.
