Fort D.A. Russell Days This Weekend At F.E. Warren
F.E. Warren will host its annual open house known as Fort D.A. Russell Days July 18-20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to give community members an opportunity to learn about the base’s mission and history.
Events during the three-day open house include historic military demonstrations, security forces dog presentations, muskets to missiles displays, period style dances and high noon gunfights.
Tours of our trainers will also be available at no cost. The tour will consist of visiting the Missile Procedures Trainer (a mockup of the Launch Control Center, where the missileers work) and the Uniform-01 Training Facility (a mockup of a Launch Facility, where the missile is housed). Participants will also visit the helicopter hangar, the Warren ICBM & Heritage Museum and maintenance vehicles.
