Planning for a vice presidential visit

By  | 

MINOT, N.D. - Safety for all involved on a visit from someone like the vice president requires perfect planning.

The Minot Air Force Base had to work on short notice so it was a lot of late nights working with the protocol office, getting times as close as possible and working with the White House

“Well on a visit like this from the vice president we have secret service here, we have people from the White House here, his staff and then of course members of our security forces here. They are working around the clock making sure everything is right from the media getting on base, dependents, military members getting on base,” said 2nd Lt. Danielle Lucero.

In case you didn't know, the base in Minot has two legs of the nuclear triad intercontinental ballistic missiles and the B-52 bombers. The only base that has both.
