Lt. Gen. Sean A. Gainey, commanding general of U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command, welcomes Gen. Anthony J. Cotton, commander of U.S. Strategic Command, to the Ronald Reagan Ballistic Missile Defense Test Site on Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Cotton and Gainey had the opportunity to witness SMDC’s team as they played an important role in supporting the Air Force’s Glory Trip-249, June 4. On June 6, SMDC also supported GT-250. During the tests, two unarmed Minuteman III ICBMs launched from Vandenberg Space Force Base, California, during Air Force Global Strike Command’s operational test and impacted in a pre-established target zone near SMDC’s RTS range and test facility roughly 2,300 miles southwest of Hawaii.
