The Nike Historical Society is a group of Nike veterans and enthusiasts who are striving to keep the memory of the Nike program alive. Our objective is to support the restoration of Nike sites throughout the United States, to insure that interpretation of these sites is accurate, and to assist with technical information. In addition, we are here to answer questions about the Nike missile system and the role it played in the defense of our nation and our allies during the Cold War.
Though the society was conceived and implemented by Nike Veterans, anyone interested in furthering its aims may become a member.
Membership is $20 per year and the fee as with all donations is tax deductible. You are not limited to a one year membership, whether you are a new member or are renewing. You can sign up or renew for as many years as you want. The amount is $20 per year.
Thank You, BLAZING SKIES!!!!!

How many times have you tried to picture something from your youth? Sometimes a picture forms when you smell a familiar smell or hear a familiar tune on the radio. What brings back the memory? Don't you sometimes just wish you had those pictures always at the ready whenever you want to see them in your minds eye? I know most of us wish we could, especially those of us that served in the Army Air Defense Command. Now you can get something to show your friends and family. Al Kellogg, a Nike Hercules VET who served at C Battery, 2nd of the 51st Arty, San Rafael, California is offering two prints of his pen and ink work. These prints are the beginning of a series of prints depicting the Nike story. The first of the series depicts a Nike Hercules Launching Area, with the IFC in the background. The second in this series is a wonderful assemblage of an IFC. These 8.5" by 11" pen and inks would be great for your wall or desk. Get your memory back as soon as you can. As you know, if you can remember, we were not allowed to take pictures or make drawings of our sites when we were there. You can have your very own NOW. These wonderful pen and inks are popular, so get yours now.
You can purchase a signed unframed copy of this print for only $25.
We have located a dozen signed and numbered copies bearing our Oozlefinch logo and are selling these for $30.
