About Us

This web site is dedicated to those who served in the 556th Strategic Missile Squadrons.  This is the only Atlas squadron that was active at two different times and used two different types of ICBM weapon systems.  The first unit was active from 1959 until 1961 and was in charge of the only Snark SM-62 squadron ever deployed.  The second unit was active from 1961 until 1965 and was in charge of 12 Atlas F bases deployed in a ring around Plattsburgh AFB in Plattsburgh, New York.


The members of the 556th have an active association that allows members to stay in touch with each other through a Member's List and through the planning and attendance of reunions which usually occur every two years.
