#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

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
