US Strategic Command boss Adm. Cecil Haney visited F.E. Warren AFB, Wyo., to gather feedback from airmen involved in the Minuteman III ICBM mission and to chair a forum of ICBM stakeholders across the Defense Department, according to
a base release. The forum “allows me to listen to our leadership,” said Haney, adding that the gathering allows those involved in the mission to “meet as one team and look at how we can sustain this very important capability.” Haney, who spent April 27-28 on base, has spoken frequently to Congress and in public appearances about the investments needed across the nuclear triad in the coming years, and has pointed to the importance of modernizing
command and control elements of the triad in order to preserve the responsiveness of the nuclear deterrent.
