 Minuteman Missile is a very unique Historic Site in that we have volunteers who actively participated in United States defense during the Cold War. From having Missile Combat personnel who once sat in the underground Launch Control Centers, and Air Borne Command Centers, to maintenance personnel who worked in the missile field, to personnel who participated in the "Trust but Verify" part of the START Treaties. Minuteman Missile offers the "Meet the Missileers" program. This program allows people of all ages to ask questions to the personnel that lived the history that made up the defense system of the Cold War.
