Fort D. A. Russell Days From Muskets To Missiles
“In 1862, President Lincoln approved a military installation in the Wyoming Territory to protect the nation’s first transcontinental railroad. In 1867, the U.S. Cavalry established Fort D. A. Russell the same year Cheyenne was founded.”
Time has brought major changes from the first days of Army cavalry to today’s modern–day Air Force Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles used to protect our great nation.
Highlighting the shared history and growth is the F. E. Warren Air Force Base open house called Fort D.A. Russell Days. Historic home tours, military reenactments and tours of Minuteman III and Peacekeeper missile systems are available to look back in history or forward to the future.
F.E. Warren Air Force Base is located at exit 11 on I-25 in Cheyenne.
You only get one chance per year to get onto F.E. Warren Air Force Base and that time is now.
