The Nike Historical Society is looking to help the National Park Service with soldier’s memories of what it was like to serve on a Nike Missile Base. I know all of us have stories to tell; some good and some bad, on the day to day life and duties of serving on a nuclear armed base. What we are asking for is whatever you would like to share, to be held for future reference, to tell our story. Your story can be short or long, no matter. Just email the story to me and we will publish it on our web site and see to it that it is archived for all future generations to read and understand the commitment we served by, and the funny stories of stuff we did to lighten the burden. Please take some time to send us your experiences. Let us know the base you served on and your name with address along with your great story. Also let us know what address or other identifying information you want published. Thank-you for your service and your story.
