GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) — The entrance of Malmstrom Air Force Base is getting a facelift in time to mark the 50th anniversary of the installation of the nation’s first Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The Great Falls Tribune reports that the state and Cascade County projects will total $730,000. They include repaving the roadway leading to the base and installing columns, fencing, shrubs and trees.

The work is scheduled to begin in July and end by September.

The Air Force Association of Missileers will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first Minuteman missiles at the base on Oct 10.

Several hundred people, including Air Force leaders as well as the former missileers, are expected.

The 10th Missile Squadron at Malmstrom, the first to operate a Minuteman system, went online Oct. 26, 1962.
