21st Space Wing celebrates silver anniversaryPeterson Air Force Base - 05/22/17 7:21 AM
Peterson Air Force Base is hosting a commemorative event to mark the 21st Space Wing's silver anniversary at 10 a.m. May 25, at the Peterson Air and Space Museum.
The event will pay tribute to the wing's accomplishments over the past 25 years, show appreciation to the Colorado Springs community for their support, and unveil the contents of a time capsule to preserve a historical cache of items from units across the wing.
Guest speakers include Col. Douglas Schiess, 21st Space Wing commander, and Jeff Greene, Mayor John Suthers' chief of staff.
From its first day on May 15, 1992, the wing conducted its primary mission of missile warning and has grown to be one of the most geographically dispersed wings in the Air Force, with a worldwide network of assigned missile warning, space surveillance and communication units. It is comprised of six groups, 42 units at 25 locations worldwide with approximately 4,300 Airmen, including civilians and contractors dedicated to conducting the mission.
The 21st Space Wing evolved to include the new mission area of space surveillance, which involves an arena of activities ranging from routine space tracking and space object identification, to event processing and orbital safety.
As the host unit at Peterson Air Force Base, the wing is a proud member of the Colorado Springs community and brings with it a $1.27 billion annual economic impact to the state.
