Personnel stationed at F.E. Warren AFB include active duty Air Force, Army Guard, Naval Reservists and Air National Guard members and families.
There are also civilians who work on the base, retirees and their families. Since Cheyenne is situated at high altitude, around 6,000 feet above sea level, residents can experience altitude sickness for about a week until they adjust to the elevation.
F. E. Warren is the only military base in Wyoming. Although, Wyoming is the tenth largest state it also has the lowest population of them all. Industries in Wyoming include oil, natural gas, mining, tourism and farming because of the large expanses of grassing land which make it ideal for raising lots of cows or sheep. Wyoming currently has an unemployment rate of 4.9 percent, a sales tax rate of 4 percent and is one of the few states that have no state income tax.
Wyoming is an outdoor enthusiast paradise due to the large number of parks which are perfect for camping, hiking, fishing, hunting, rock climbing, and white water rafting.
It is home to the Grand Teton National Park as well as Yellow Stone National park which is best known for the geyser named Old Faithful. This geyser is one of the few which erupts regularly at intervals of approximately every ninety minutes. Other points of interest in Wyoming include Devils Tower National Monument, the Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area, and the Fort Laramie National Historic Site.
