    Fellow Missileers:

    If you are interested in learning more about the current state of our nuclear triad then I'd encourage you to look at the upcoming Strategic Deterrent Coalition (SDC) Symposium in Las Vegas. We work closely with the SDC to educate the public on the status of our forces and this is a key event for them. Their list of speakers is impressive! Here is more from the SDC:

    The Strategic Deterrent Coalition’s Ninth Annual Symposium on May 9, 2024, at the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa, Las Vegas, NV is fast approaching.
