Minuteman III Launch Vandenberg AFB

Minuteman III Launch Vandenberg AFB - 1994


My name is Dave Fields and I live and work in Missoula, Montana with my gorgeous wife Sherry, and my best hiking buddies, our yellow and black labs, Socrates and Plato.

I grew up in Lewistown, Montana, the center of the 490th Strategic Missile Squadron, and was very familiar with the numerous Minuteman III Launch Facilities located in numerous areas surrounding Lewistown. It was hard not to notice these missiles. What initially started as a respectful curiosity toward the Minuteman missile, has grown into a significant interest in the Minuteman missile, its weapon system and components, as well as becoming very interested in the Peacekeeper and Small ICBM missiles.

Most people don't understand my passionate interest in the ICBM, nor have I ever thought that they would. However, it is undeniable how I have been bitten by this profound interest in the Minuteman missile and the overall structure that oversees this weapon system.

Thus my intent in putting together this website. After hours of doing my own research, I decided to put together a website that will hopefully provide comprehensive information and/or answer those questions I myself discovered that I was intrigued by. If you are looking for something that you don't find on this site, don't hesitate to contact me. I will do my best to help you out.

To avoid being trolled by phishing bots that seek out email addresses from websites, I am including my contact information below in the form of a jpg image.
