Welcome to Team Whiteman

Hello, and welcome to Whiteman Air Force Base's Leadership Link. 

As America’s premier bomber force, the 509th Bomb Wing supports, maintains and operates our nation’s only stealth bomber – the B-2 Spirit. As such, our team proudly affords the President of the United States and Combatant Commanders distinct and unrivaled military capabilities that are available nowhere else.

As commander of the 509th Bomb Wing and the installation commander, I will endeavor to serve with passion, humility, courage and respect, and I ask the same from the men and women assigned to Whiteman AFB.

Whether you are a military member assigned to Whiteman AFB, a family member of someone stationed here, or a citizen from our surrounding communities, please know that your thoughts matter to me.  If you have recommendations, feedback and/or concerns for our team, please contact me via my Commander's Corner submission form.

If you wish to submit a media query, have questions about base functions, or need assistance with any base-related issues, please contact our Public Affairs team via email at 509bw.public.affairs@us.af.mil or by phone at (660) 687-5727.

Thanks...I look forward to hearing from you!

Keith J. Butler
Colonel, USAF
Commander, 509th Bomb Wing
