About

Ellsworth AFB is 10 miles east of Rapid City, S.D. The relationship between Ellsworth and Rapid
The city was exemplified by Ellsworth’s main entrance, a gift from the citizens of Rapid City, constructed to symbolize a B-52 Stratofortress, one of the aircraft formerly flown by the 28th Bomb Wing. This entrance has recently been replaced. The mission of the 28th Bomb Wing is to deliver combat power for a global military response. It is divided into the 28th Operations Group, the 28th Maintenance Group, the 28th Mission Support Group, and the 28th Medical Group. Ellsworth has a population of about 8,000 military members, family members, and civilian employees. Rapid City itself has a population of just more than 62,500. There are about 3,800 military retirees in western South Dakota.
