The 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren AFB, Wyo., was declared mission ready Jan. 19 by the Air Force Global Strike Command Inspector General team after their first full no-notice Nuclear Surety Inspection under the new command.

The wing also successfully completed two other inspections that occurred while the inspector general's team was at the base - a nuclear operational readiness inspection, which demonstrated their operational capability to support U.S. Strategic Command; and an operational readiness inspection, used to evaluate and measure the unit's ability to perform its wartime contingency and force-sustainment missions.

The inspections began four weeks after the wing passed a no-notice Limited Nuclear Surety Inspection. The three inspections took place from Jan 5-19.

"Inspections are designed to check that we're doing the right things, the right way, every day," said Col. Sandy Finan, AFGSC Inspector General. "We must make sure that by our actions and by what we inspect, we are reinforcing that behavior. We don't expect there to be any difference in performance based on whether or not someone is looking."
