The Nike program was ended by the military in 1974 and forever by the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty, but the history lives on at crumbling (or converted) sites testifying to a time when the US prepared for imminent attack from Soviet aircraft. Nike anti-aircraft missiles were stationed in rings around major metropolitan and industrial centers across the nation ready to fire upon enemy planes using conventional and nuclear warheads.
