In the morning around 0800 at the Launch Facility, security policeman SENIOR AIRMAN Blake Wingate of 341 OSS holds open Launch Facility K-11's gate and allows a transporter/erector vehicle from the 341 Missile Maintenance Squadron to come onto the site. Today the truck will be removing the 341 Missile Wing's last Minuteman II intercontinental ballistic missile from its launcher, marking the end of thirty years of Minuteman II's in the Air Force inventory and the completion of President Bush's 1991 "Stand Down" order which removed all Minuteman II missiles from alert
