Kelley: Whiteman Air Force Base Tour

JEFFERSON CITY – State Rep. Mike Kelley, R-Lamar, recently joined a group of lawmakers for a trip to Warrensburg where the group toured Whiteman Air Force Base. The trip, which took place Friday, Aug. 5, was hosted by state Rep. Denny Hoskins, R-Warrensburg, who represents the area.

Kelley and other members of the Missouri House met with military officials to learn more about the specific functions of Whiteman Air Force base, which houses the B-2 Stealth Bomber. The group was able to observe a B-2 Bomber as well as tour a deactivated Minuteman launch facility.

“I’m thankful I had the opportunity to make the trip and to meet some of the fine men and women serving in our United States Air Force,” said Kelley. “It was eye opening see firsthand how large the base is and how important it is to the Johnson County area and the state With more than 5,000 people living on base, it functions as its own city. The economic impact it has on the 121st district and all of Missouri is immense.”
