On behalf of the men and women of the 90th Missile Wing, a big Mighty Ninety welcome to Brigadier General (select) Bussiere, the AFGSC Inspector General, his team, and all inspectors participating in the Consolidated Unit Inspection.

Our goal is to help you work through all your inspection requirements as quickly and efficiently as possible, so please do not hesitate to let any one of our team members know how we can help you. The members of this elite combat unit are very proud of the on-alert, nuclear strike capability we provide the President through the Commander, United States Strategic Command every day. We are eager to show you how we accomplish this critical mission and to demonstrate our culture of strict compliance, precision, and excellence in everything we do. It takes the entire team of professionals across this base and missile complex to maintain, secure, operate, and provide all the combat support to ensure our weapons and warriors are ready every minute of every day to execute, should the President call upon us. Unlike most units that undergo inspections, I humbly remind you that we are fulfilling a real-world combat alert role and conducting operations in support of our combatant commander every day. I am certain that we can facilitate and meet all your inspection needs, but we all must remember that exercise and inspection requirements must always take a back-seat to our on-going, real-world mission requirements.

Please know that we understand how important your duties are here and that we are committed to helping you accomplish them in any way we can and also let us know if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable. Once again, welcome to Francis E. Warren Air Force Base, home of the 2011 United States Strategic Command Omaha Trophy ("Best Missile Wing") and back-to-back Blanchard Trophy winning Mighty Ninety!
