Oscar Zero Site

Fun and sort of creepy fact.....did you know North Dakota used to have TONS of nuclear missles all over the place during the cold war?  Did you know that in the country side near Cooperstown there were quite a few of them?  Today we went to Oscar Zero which is sort like an old base where people who come and on top side they would guard the missile sites around the area.....and then down below there were two people who were basically in charge of launching the missiles if they were ever commanded to.  1 mile away from Cooperstown in the Oscar Zero site.....they closed it down in 1997 and saved everything from it and just kind of gave it to the historical committee it's very interesting to go to but VERY creepy to think about all the stress and the power that this building could have done!!
