On August 18th, the 91st Maintenance Group hosted their 91st MXG Family Fun Day. The event brought together maintenance group members and their families to see the work that the 91 MXG performs. Open displays of various equipment were provided for tours to help educate and provide visual reminders of the 91st MXG’s mission of safe and secure nuclear deterrence. The equipment showcased consisted of the Payload Transporter, Transporter Erector, and our training launch facility.
Colonel Patrick Baum, 91st MXG commander, delivered the opening remarks for the event and welcomed all the personnel, their families, and the community partners who helped put the event together. The unit presented miniature Bully sticks, a symbol of the 91 MW’s heritage, to key partners for embracing Teddy Roosevelt’s love of hard work, love of country, and personal sacrifice demonstrated by our technicians daily.
Key partners included Northern Sentry, Noodles & Company, Jersey Mikes, and the Scandinavian Heritage Association. Airmen of the 91st MXG enjoyed food and festivities to help bring together the BULLY spirit and show their families the details and background behind the work to operate, maintain and protect the Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile.
The 373rd Training Squadron, our local training detachment, provided tours of Uniform-1, the on-base training facility, and showed the inner workings and operations of an in-field Launch Facility.
