Francis Emroy Warren Air Force Base is located in Cheyenne, Laramie County, Wyoming. The base is immediately adjacent to the West side of the City of Cheyenne and is directly across US Interstate 25 and three miles north of the I-80 and I-25 interchange. Cheyenne can be easily accessed by car, Great Lakes Airline, Shuttle from Denver International Airport, or bus. Cheyenne is located 100 miles north of Denver, Colorado and is the transportation crossroads in the Southeastern corner of Wyoming. It is eight miles north of the Colorado Border on I-25 and forty miles west of the Nebraska border off I-80.
It was on the branch of the South Platte River, three miles west of what is today Cheyenne that Fort D. A. Russell was established in 1867. Originally named in honor of Civil War Brigadier General David A. Russell, F. E. Warren Air Force Base is the oldest continuously active military installation within the Air Force. It’s home to the 90th Missile Wing and Headquarters, 20th Air Force, of Air Force Global Strike Command.
When President Lincoln and Congress set plans for the transcontinental railroad, they recognized the need for a military installation to protect Union Pacific workers from hostile Indians. On July 4, 1867, the railroad established its mountain region headquarters at Crow Creek Crossing, later known as Cheyenne. A few weeks later, the U.S. Cavalry moved from temporary headquarters in Cheyenne to a point three miles west and established Fort D. A. Russell. Thus, 1867 was the beginning of a city and a fort, and both have grown together over the years.
The men and women of Warren AFB and the 90th missile wing, also known as the Mighty Ninety, remain poised to accomplish their vital mission: “Provide preeminent combat capability across the spectrum of conflict.”
The 90th Missile Wing employs approximately 3,361 military members and 964 civilian employees. Family members of assigned military members add another approximately 5,445 to the local population. Also, some 5,000 military retirees reside in the area.
Currently, there is no base transportation on this installation.
