Two major Wings call Minot Air Force Base home. The 5th Bomb Wing currently operates a fleet of B-52s, and the 91st Strategic Missile Wing operates 150 Minutemen ICBMs on full alert all day, every day. The base is in North Dakota, just 50 miles from Canada. Owls are common sight in this part of the country and their nests can be found scattered throughout the base. Our charm is a .925 sterling silver owl accented with yellow gems for eyes. “Minot AFB ND” is inscribed on the back.
