It’s pretty exciting to see your name
signed for 10 nuclear missiles. Every time I see it, it’s a very humbling
experience. I am 2nd Lieutenant Enrique Villegas-Gonzales and I am a nuclear and missile operations officer. I am
1st Lieutenant Wess Griffith and I’m a nuclear and missile operations officer.
We are responsible for the nuclear operations of intercontinental ballistic
missiles. Our missiles are spread out along the vast area of Montana.
So missiles aren’t directly next to us, we’re in control of those missiles that
could be miles away. We assume the missile alerts duty for a 24 hour period. Upon
arrival to the capsule, we inspect all of the classified documents. We also inspect
the equipment and also process any of the maintenance that’s happening at the
time with the launch facilities as well as the security forces so that our
missiles are secured at all times. Being in missiles is definitely not an every
day job. The best way that I can describe this is by looking at a month. During
this month period, we have anywhere between six or eight missile alerts
duties where we post out to the field and we do our 24 hour shift. The launch
control center, which is where we work, is located about 60 feet underground.
It’s almost like a pill capsule. But you definitely can’t be claustrophobic, it is
a very enclosed place. The average screens that we monitor the status of
the sorties and also our communication systems. We receive alarms, constantly
coordinating different things with our crews out in the field. So we are in
control of the maintenance and security and keeping the missiles on alert for
the country. I am 1st Lieutenant Wess Griffith. I am 2nd Lieutenant Enrique
Villegas-Gonzales and I am an American Airman.
