Off-Topic: NPR All Things Considered segment about ICBMs
As some may know, in my youth I enlisted in the United States Air Force for four years. I also did 6 years in the Montana Air National Guard. These days I look like a long-haired hippy. I came to Montana in 1986 when I was stationed at Malmstrom AFB and my career field was Electro-Mechanical Team (EMT) which was basically maintenance of the Minuteman 2 & 3 ICBM program's Launch Control Facility and Launch Facility command and control electronics. I never actually dispatched to any LF nor LCF sites because I got a job in an office that issues maintenance equipment and vehicles to those who do. It was the VECB... Vehicle and Equipment Control Branch. Enough about me.
