Nike Missile Site SF88L in San Francisco

I took a little trip to SF, CA to check out the old bunkers on the hills of the Sausalito side of the Golden Gate Bridge. I just happened upon this old missile site and joined a quick tour of the Nike Missile site that was operational from 1959 - 1974. It was put in place to defend against the threat of "new" Russian jet bombers and ballistic missiles. I absolutely love military history and was ridiculously excited when the tour guide brought the missile up and raised it for some veterans that were also on the tour. I added some facts and Cold War era music to this very under-produced clip. Be gentle you snarling critics of LL ;-)
