The 50 Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile silos belonging to the 341st Missile Wing, Malmstrom Air Force Base, are being eliminated in accordance with the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty requirements. The missile launch facilities being eliminated were part of the 564th Missile Squadron, which were deactivated in 2008. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Katrina Heikkinen)
