US Army Nike AA Missile Base
  Bristol, Rhode Island
 I hope you enjoyed your tour of our defensive effort during the Cold War to keep the cities safe in case of an enemy attack. It was an experience I enjoyed doing especially when things got quite a bit more than "warm" during the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962.

Hopefully it will never come this close again
to our Homeland!
