Delta-09 “Site Strike” Program
At 10:00 a.m., Thursday, June 15th, join park rangers at the Delta-09 missile silo for a special program exploring the work of the Security Police in the missile field of South Dakota, led by Bret Whitmore and his fellow veterans of the 45th Missile Security Squadron.
