Those were crazy times; who remembers the "duck and cover"routine under your office desk? Did anyone believe that action would save them? My memory of the Nike sites is of the soldier I dated who was stationed at the Manchester site.

Greetings to all
I was in package 8, Fort Bliss and then Red Canyon, 1953-1954. Assigned to 738th Nike Missile Bn. and we built a temporary site about 6 miles out of Fort Dix, NJ.
Eventually moved to PH32, Marlton, NJ
I enjoy reliving the good old days...thanks

I was Stationed at HA67 at Plainville in 59 and 60 I remember the drive up the hill, at that time there was a wrecking yard about half way up to the gate, There were wild hogs roaming the area,
I was assigned to the HQ area, I'm Curious if anyone was there at that time.
