Hi Matt

That was an interesting story. Every once in a while stories about those missile sites pop up on TV, newspaper or on the net.

I can tell a related story. I grew up in Pembroke, MA which is about 25 miles south of Boston. Somewhere in the very early 60's I was outside my parents house when I heard what sounded like a large truck coming up the street. We lived just off of the main drag, once in a while people will make a wrong turn and come down our street, which eventually connects back to the main route.

I will never forget that it was an 18 wheeler and a flatbed coming up the street. What I saw next, I couldn't believe. On the flatbed was a missile plain as day. It was not covered up at all. Those were the days of the cold war, there was always a lot of tension between Russia and the US, China would also make some noise sometimes. I can remember telling my parents, but probably never thought too much more about it; but I never forgot it, to this day. I thought to myself what would a missile be doing here.

Years later maybe in the 80's or 90's, I stopped down to my mother's and read the local paper. There was an article about abandon missile silos in Halifax MA, which was the next town. The dots were connected.

Now that I think about it, there was an Air Force Base about 12 miles away and we were 8 miles from the coast. So if you think all the missile were in the middle of the country they were not.

That's crazy! You'd think they'd try to conceal what was on the back of the truck...Laughing

My dad used to tell me stories about stuff like that, especially about the "Nike" missile bases around the area. I've been to a couple of them, they were all around the loop of Route 128, which I guess was built as a military highway in the first place to service these bases a la the Autobahn (?). There's one in Reading but you can't really check it out because it's on the ground of the gun club behind Camp Curtis Guild, there's one in Topsfield on Route 1 that's all overgrown, there was one in Nahant where I believe Northeastern University keeps boats now...there was one at Beverly Airport...I forget where else... Shocked

I know Wompatuck State Park has or had some old Cold War era military remains left out there, and the old Natick Labs/Fort Devens Annex in Sudbury is full of old underground ammunition bunkers out in the woods, I walked around that place a couple of years ago with friends and was surprised at how huge it was, over 2000 acres!
