The site was a Luftwaffe site and they owned the missile. Uncle Sam owned the Nuke warhead we had 15 of them and were ready for bear. Thank God we never used them because I would have.

Name: Bill Harris
EmailAddress: whar461@ecy.wa.gov
Remarks: I have a professional interest in the typical operations at Nike facilities in Washington State and the amounts and types of hazardous wastes that may have been generated and disposed of at them. In particular, I'm currently working on a cleanup at Four Lakes Air National Guard Station between Cheney and Spokane, which was previously the home of Nike F-37, 1951-1961. If there any former crew members who served there or elsewhere in our fair state and who might have insights into this subject, please feel free to contact me.

Name: John Braun
EmailAddress: jjbraun@juno.com
Remarks: I enlisted in the Army from 11/65 -11/68. After a lot of schooling at Ft. Bliss, TX, I graduated as a SP/4, IFC Tech.; MOS 24Q20 with a secondary MOS in the ABAR 69 & 71 Radars. I was assigned to the 1st Msl Bn, 60th Arty, Site C46, Btry C, Munster, Indiana. I helped deactivate C46 in August 68 as ARADCOM got downsized. I ETS'd as an E-5. My E-6 promotion never came through as a result of the downsizing. After a continued career in electronics, I'm presently retired, living in Indianapolis. Lots of wonderful memories of my days at Ft. Munster with ARADCOM. I am now a life member of The Nike Preservation Group, Inc. of which I"m a board member. We are in the process of trying to obtain the Launcher Area property of C47, Btry A, Wheeler, IN, just NW of Valparaiso. Our Group is a not-for-profit Corporation dedicated to the preservation of American Cold War history. Through the work of the NPG, Inc., C47 became a State Historic Site, and we hope to soon be placed on the National Register of Historic places. Because freedom has never been free, we owe it to those who follow us to leave a record of those dark days of the Cold War. Heaven help us if they ever forget.... We are looking for 45th Brigade Nike Veterans of the Chicago-Gary defense and/or any of you that would be interested in joining our Group. Contact: Don Peterson at e-mail dspeterson@musa.org
