Abstract:

Defense DoD Legacy Resource Management Program was established under the Defense Appropriations Act of 1991 to determine how to better integrate the conservation of irreplaceable biological, cultural, and geophysical resources with the dynamic requirements of military missions. One of Legacys nine task areas was the Cold War Project, which seeks to inventory, protect, and conserve DoDs physical and literary property and relics associated with the Cold War. To support the program and task area, this report contains a history of the U.S. Cold War missile program, technical profiles of the weapons systems, and state-by-state listings of sites related to the missile program. This information can be used as a reference guide when identifying and evaluating the historical significance of missile-related cultural resources throughout the United States.
