In November 1992, General McPeak declared his intention of transferring responsibility for ICBMs to Air Force Space Command. The transfer served to bring the ICBM mission in line with the Air Force's space mission. The reassignment took place on 1 July 1993, with Twentieth Air Force, six missile wings, one test and training wing, and F.E. Warren AFB, Wyoming, transitioning to Air Force Space Command ownership. Twentieth Air Force moved from Vandenberg AFB, California, to F. E. Warren AFB, Wyoming, effective October 1, 1993.
