"It was both an extraordinary and astonishing remark, perhaps even hyperbolic." April 4, 1944 was a very special day for us 🇺🇸🇺🇸 Find out why in the link below ⬇️
#OTD in #20AFHistory, in 1963, the first #TitanII went on alert at complex 570-2, Davis-Monthan AFB, only twenty-eight months after construction began. Nine months later, on 30 November, all Titan IIs of Davis-Monthan’s 390th Strategic Missile Wing had achieved alert status, making it the first of the three Titan II wings to do so. #SentinelWarriors #20AF75th
#OTD in #20AFHistory, in 1945, as part of the bombardment campaign leading to the upcoming Okinawa landings, more than 151 of 161 B-29's dispatched from the XXI BC attack an aircraft factory at Omura, Oita Navy Airfield, Kyushu and Tachiarai Army Airfield, Kyushu; three B-29's attacked other targets. During the night of 27-28 March, 92 of 102 B-29's dispatched from the 313th Bombardment Wing to sow mines in Shimonoseki Strait between Honshu and Kyushu, and two B-29's mine other waters. #SentinelWarriors
Many of you have met Chief Good and his family, and know the impact he has left on so many of us. A few weeks ago, he hung up his uniform after 29 years of faithful service. Best of luck in your new chapter, Chief! http://ow.ly/rIvg50o9qoy
This week for #WomenInMissiles, we go back in time to 1 January, 1988. After extensive studies, and in order to make #missile crew alert tour scheduling and substitutions more flexible, Strategic Air Command policy changed to permit mixed (male/female) two-person crews in #Minutemen and #Peacekeeper launch facilities. Crewmembers who were uncomfortable with this arrangement, still had the option to opt out of serving on mixed crew duty. #20AF #WomensHistoryMonth
For this week’s #WomenInMissiles, we take a look at #OTD in #20AFHistory in 2016. To honor Women’s History Month, 90 female missileers completed a 24-hour alert across 20th Air Force missile wings in Montana, Wyoming and North Dakota. Photo 1. #Missileers from the 90th Operations Group at F. E. Warren AFB, Wyo., retired Col. Pat Fornes, the first female officer on a U.S. missile crew and the first female missile squadron commander; and Retired Col. Linda Aldrich, first female Minuteman ICBM crew member. Photo 2. A missileer from Malmstrom AFB, Mont., displays her patch designed to commemorate the event. #WomenPioneers #LeadingTheWay #20AF #WomensHistoryMonth
It’s the first day of spring! Today the length of day and night will be nearly equal. Who’s ready to say goodbye to winter?!🙋 At #20AF, blizzard, rain or shine, the nuclear mission never stops. Our #Airmen are always #OnAlert and #CombatReady.
#OTD in #20AFHistory, in 1964 the third wing of #Minuteman ICBMs was completed when the 742nd Strategic Missile Squadron assigned to the 455th Strategic Missile Wing, was turned over to Strategic Air Command at Minot AFB, North Dakota. #ICBM #SentinelWarriors
#DYK that #20AF is responsible for maintaining and operating the ENTIRE Air Force's ICBM force? Well, now you do! #SentinelWarriors
20th Air Force headquarters staff hosted a bowling tournament last week, one of the many events planned this year celebrating our 75th anniversary! Congratulations to the 90th MW Finance team for taking home the trophy! #20AF75th #SentinelWarriors
For this week’s #WomenInMissiles edition of our continuing celebration of women #missileers, we are highlighting Capt. Linda S. Aldrich. Aldrich and Capt. Nancy K. Dean became the first all-female crew to stand alert at Whiteman AFB in 1986. Aldrich became the first woman instructor in the training division, and Dean became the first woman to join the evaluations division. Pictured here is Capt. Aldrich. (Courtesy photo of Linda S. Aldrich) #WomenPioneers #LeadingTheWay #20AF #WomensHistoryMonth
Check out our female #missileers at Minot, N.D., who joined fellow missileers from Malmstrom AFB and F.E. Warren AFB for an all-female alert crew! Now THOSE are some awesome superheroes! #WomenInMissiles #20AF #InternationalWomensDay
Last night, while America slept, an all-female alert crew kept watch over the entire U.S. ICBM force. This tradition has been going on since 2011. What a way to celebrate #InternationalWomensDay! Keep on rocking it, ladies! #20AF #WomenInMissiles
