Teaching Stories of the Cold War and Nuclear Deterrence
Mission, Duty and Vigilance are all values that can be learned by studying the experiences of the men and women who served in Minuteman Missile fields. For landowners and local citizens of the Great Plains, the Cold War had a defining effect upon their way of life for decades on end.
