~The FReeper Canteen Presents~

Road Trip: Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado

Schriever Air Force Base (Schriever AFB) is a base of the United States Air Force located approximately 10 miles east of Peterson AFB near Colorado Springs in El Paso County, Colorado, United States. The base is named in honor of General Bernard Adolph Schriever, who pioneered the development of the nation's ballistic missile programs.

It is home to Air Force Space Command's 50th Space Wing, which provides command and control for more than 170 Department of Defense warning, navigational, and communications satellites. Also housed at Schriever AFB are the Missile Defense Integration and Operations Center and the Space Innovation & Development Center. Schriever AFB is the main control point for the Global Positioning System (GPS).

Schriever AFB is the home of the 50th Space Wing, the Space Innovation and Development Center, the Missile Defense Agency's Joint National Integration Center, 310th Space Group and numerous tenant organizations.

The 50th Space Wing's mission provide combat effects to the warfighter, to include precision navigation and timing and secure satellite communication, through command and control of DOD satellite systems. The other units at Schriever also perform space missions. Schriever Air Force Base is unique in that they have no flightline and no aircraft mission.



Some of the services normally provided at most Air Force bases are not available on Schriever; however, Peterson AFB is a full service base, offering base housing and other support functions.

The 50th SW provides integrated combat effects from space, ensures command and control of satellite weapons systems, and conducts expeditionary operations to enable sovereign options for the defense of the United States of America and its global interests.

The wing operates and supports satellite programs including Global Positioning System, the Defense Satellite Communications System, Wideband Global SATCOM, Milstar, and the worldwide Air Force Satellite Control Network.

The SIDC is composed of the 595th Space Group and these three divisions; the Air Force Tactical Exploitation of National Capabilities, or AF TENCAP; the Integration Division; and the Plans, Programs and Requirements Division.

The organizations work together to conduct wargaming; integrate space into exercises and experiments; rapidly prototype, field and exploit integrated air, space and cyberspace capabilities; provide advanced space testing, training and range Infrastructure; and execute AFSPC Force Development Evaluation and Operational Test programs.

Good morning, Kathy!

*HUGS*

Trains are not running today due to inclement weather. I drove in to the office - roads are in good shape. It was just a minor snowfall as far as I'm concerned, but they still called schools. Hope you have a great Tuesday as well!

Good morning, Everyone.

Good morning to our AWESOME military, our allies, and their families

Thank you, Lauren, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities.

Is Colorado warmer than Maryland today? I need to go someplace warmer. I got spoiled with those 60 degree days.

~ Today...Cloudy with scattered snow showers this morning...Then partly sunny this afternoon. Cooler with highs in the lower 30s. North winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of snow 40 percent.

~ Tonight...Mostly clear. Lows in the lower 20s. North winds 10 to 15 mph.

Had a nice weekend and a day off yesterday. Now back to work, UGH!

Woke to light snow covering some frozen rain (earlier). Had to do some serious scraping of windows before I could drive.

Roads were in pretty good shape though.

I just hope this is the last for the year. I am so ready for spring!

Time to make my rounds.
But, you stay right where you are. Don't touch that dial. And, remember – I’ll be watching!

So, come on in and sit for a while.
There's always plenty of coffee, pancakes, conversation, silliness, and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM

Good to see you, too.

I missed being here yesterday. Seemed as if my day got off to a wrong start. But, I had an early breakfast meeting with my parents since I had not seen them in months. Then, went shopping at Penney’s - they’re having a really nice sale.

So? How was your weekend?

LOVE IT! Thanks.

Glad your day off was nice. Mine was but it wasn't very sunny.

It's it a bummer we have to wait until May to get another 3 day? Darn! Oh wait, I'm having a 4-day in March for my (shhhh) birthday.

Forgot - did you have lunch with your daugher? And, how was it?

Have a splendalicious day!

Good Luck, Tee!!!

My oldest enjoyed his time in Tulsa, except for when Memorial was iced over - that made getting to work at Fine Airport Parking a little hazardous.

Oh, and the tornadoes and hailstorms also bugged him a little bit, as did the attitude of TPD toward people with out-of-state license plates.

Other than that, Tulsa is a great place to live and work...!!

Received this message from DieHard the Hunter this morning but didn’t have a chance to post it....

“Hi, yes we’re OK here in Auckland. Still reeling from the news: my wife and I originally wanted to settle in Christchurch (she is from there and still has relations living in and around the earthquake zone.)

I have three Guardian Angels living in Christchurch whom I have been unable to contact. I suspect it is because telecommunications is crazy right now, am hoping for the best.

We appreciate your prayers — NZ needs them right now. 65 confirmed dead so far, with estimates running around 300+.”

Hi Kathy! Thanks for asking. We're a long way north of the disaster, thankfully.

Here's a link for photos...

There's billions of dollars in damage with this hit and the one they got on Sept 4 last year. This time round, lives have been lost.
