Silent Sentinels: 320th MS Missileers

First Lt. Terrence Dale Duarte, 320th Missile Squadron missile combat crew commander and 2nd Lt. Nikolas Ramos, deputy missile combat crew commander, sit at the control console inside the launch control center at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo., Nov. 5, 2016. When directed by the U.S. President, a properly conducted key turn sends a "launch vote" to any number of Minuteman III ICBMs in a missileer's squadron, two different launch votes are required to enable a launch.
