Minuteman Missile Junior Ranger Patch

A great way for kids to learn about the history of Minuteman missiles and the Cold War is through the site's Junior Ranger program. Programs for 7-11 years and 12 and up age groups are available by clicking on Be A Junior Ranger!

Those who complete the program will be issued their very own official certificate and Minuteman Missile Junior Ranger Patch!
