Excellent site, its nice to know that that Cold War, Civil Defense is being recorded. I have a Community Shelter Plan for Ohio County, Kentucky, May 1969. It lists Community Shelters as being at the Fort Hartford Mine, Olaton, and Occupant Only Shelters as being at Beaver Dam High School and McHenry Grade School.

I was stationed at B Btry/51st Bn in New Britian/Plainview, CT from '59 to '62. In late 61, the 51st Bn was deactivated as some Ajax sites were converted to Herc and some were closed. At that time, the 55th Bn in Manchester relocated to the 51st Bn location. I stayed on there until I left in the fall of '62. My wife and I lived in the "Capart" housing located between New Britian and Plainview.
