Wyoming-Based Nuclear Missile Force Gets New Commander
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — An intercontinental ballistic missile force based in southeastern Wyoming has a new commander.
Col. Catherine Barrrington took command of the 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne in a ceremony Monday (June 28).
Barrington took over from Col. Peter Bonetti, who was base commander for two years. The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports Barrington began her career as a missileer at the base in 1997.
This is her third assignment to F.E. Warren, which oversees 150 Minuteman missiles in silos in Wyoming, Nebraska and Colorado.
