April 3, 2013 Hometown Patriots: Jason and Heather Webb

Posted: Updated:

Airman 1st Class Jason Webb and his wife, Staff Sgt. Heather Webb, are enjoying some much needed time off at home. 

The busy couple are stationed at Malstrom Air Force Base in Montana and help guard some of the nation's nuclear missiles.

"We're both active security forces. He has a big job where he's a tactical response force leader. I have my job where I work on base in charge of all the security forces sent out to guard the nukes," Heather said.

"Any security situation happens with our nuclear missiles, we go out and recapture and recover our resource. Then any time a crisis happens on base like an active shooter or terrorist, we will go out and take care of that," Jason said.

As you can imagine, security on base is extremely tight because of the 150 nuclear missiles stored there.

"They're stored underground. They're all about 100 feet down underground and they're stored in there or on base in a big Igloo. There are about 150 out there," Heather said.

And life can be quite a struggle balancing two military careers with their 3-year-old daughter, Tatum.

"We try our hardest to leave work at work. What little time we have off together we try to enjoy it as a family and try to leave the stress of work on base," Jason said.
