Green River

Green River was a research and development launch site to test developmental booster systems. From this site, Pershing missiles were launched that impacted at White Sands Missile Range. The first successful Green River launch of an Air Force Athena rocket occurred on July 8, 1964. This launch tested reentry vehicles. Pershings were also fired from sites near Gilson Butte and Blanding. Two launchers existed at the time of the signing of the INF Treaty in December 1987.
