Joint Chiefs of Staff To Visit MAFB

Posted: Updated:

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is slated to visit the Minot Air Force Base on Monday.

Officials says the purpose of the visit is for Army General Martin Dempsey to meet with airmen and their families during a town hall meeting and to tour the base.

The Minot base has B-52 bombers and also oversees Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Dempsey is the principal military adviser to the president, Secretary of Defense and the National Security Council.

Meanwhile the 91 Missile Wing Commander today relieved the operations support squadron Commander citing a loss of confidence in the squadron commander's ability to provide necessary leadership.

The action today stems the removal of launch authority from 19 personnel from the 91st Missile Wing this past May.

Those 19 have since been cleared for reinstatement to missile watch duties at Minot Air Force Base.
