WHAT WAS “THE MISSILEER”?
Between 6 February 1950 and 28 September 2012, the Joint Long Range Proving Ground, which evolved into the Eastern Range and the 45th Space Wing, published a regular newspaper for military and civilian personnel assigned to Patrick Air Force Base and the Cape Canaveral launch facilities. These last 2 facilities were renamed Patrick Space Force Base and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in 2020, and the 45th Space Wing became the Space Launch Delta 45 on 11 May 2021.
