This is fascinating! I spent nearly a year-and-a-half guarding Nike Hercules missiles with a German Shepherd in 1970-71. Never heard of any accidents with our missiles, but I heard we were 'challenged' in important areas, like our IFC, where (it was said) they couldn't lock in on a Piper Cub circling directly overhead. I'm sure that's just an exaggeration. Thanks for all the memories and knowledge that only comes from boots on the ground where it happened and when it happened.
