219th SFS is making missile field security their routine
U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Joshua Wheeler, of the 219th Security Forces Squadron, simulates firing his MK-19 automatic grenade launcher during a training exercise requiring the recapture of a launch facility after a simulated hostile take-over of the facility in the Minot Air Force Base Missile Field Complex, near Minot, North Dakota, May 25, 2016. He is one of the North Dakota Air National Guard members who took primary positions for missile filed security in an entire ‘sector’ of the missile field complex during a two week period from May 23 through June 4. This is the fourth time such an annual training surge has happened with the 219th SFS in the complex, which covers 8,500 square miles over the North Dakota plains near Minot and includes dozens of missile field alert facilities and missile launch facilities.
