Malmstrom Air Force Base Aces Limited Nuclear Surety Inspection

Posted: Updated:

 

The 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base was visited this week by the Air Force Global Strike Command Inspector General and Defense Threat Reduction Agency teams to evaluate the wing's ability to manage nuclear deterrence and global strike operations while complying with strict nuclear surety standards.

During the limited nuclear surety inspection, inspectors found zero errors or deficiencies throughout the multiple evaluation scenarios, special interest items and formal assessments, according to a press release from Malmstrom Air Force Base.

Col. Robert Stanley, 341st Missile Wing commander, had this to say about the inspection.

"The 341st Missile Wing demands exacting focus, attention to detail, discipline and dedication to the highest principles and standards from every single Nuclear Airman. I am extremely proud of every member of Wing One -- we were determined to prove to the world that we truly are the best at what we do day in and day out. We came into this inspection with something to prove, and our people are walking out with a perfect score and their heads held high," said Stanley.

"Every single one of these Nuclear Airmen understands the incredible responsibility and standards of perfection that come with the nuclear deterrence mission. They continue to accomplish their mission with great skill, professionalism and dedication," Stanley said. "These dedicated warriors continuously prove they deserve the utmost respect and confidence in their ability to provide the United States and the world with reliable nuclear deterrence."

Nuclear Surety Inspections are extremely detailed and demand the highest standards of compliance and accountability, according to a press release from the base.

    Mills Canyon burn out planned for Tuesday

    ENTIAT, Wash. - A burn out operation is planned for Tuesday morning in an effort to establish a secure line in the bottom of the canyon where the Mills Canyon Fire is burning. Burning material rolling downhill and igniting spot fires on the north side of Swakane Canyon have caused concerns and indicate a vulnerability to a fire escape and repeatedly expose firefighters to very steep terrain and rolling material.
