From the first days of Army cavalry, through several transitions to modern–day Air Force Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles, the military has played an important role in every CFD celebration. That tradition carries on with the F. E. Warren Air Force Base open house called Fort D.A. Russell Days. Historic home tours, military reenactments and tours of Minuteman III and Peacekeeper missile systems are on tap for those who dare to look back in history or forward to the future.
F.E. Warren Air Force Base is located at exit 11 on I-25 in Cheyenne.
