Welcome to the Prairie Peacekeepers WikiEdit
Discussing Nebraska's contribution to the American national defense during the Cold War from 1945 to 1991.
Describe your topicEdit
Nebraska's contributions to the Cold War vary nearly as much as the conflict did itself. The conflict's battlefields of ideology and true combat ranged from the snowy mountains of Korea, between the barbed wire fences of the Berlin Wall and even within the cornfields of the Cornhusker State where long-range ballistic missiles stood ready to launch against the Soviet Union.
The U.S. Air Force's Offutt Air Force Base and with it Strategic Air Command's headquarters is a typically well known focal point of the Cold War, but aside from this base there were radar stations, emergency rocket communications sites, strategic communications centers, ICBM sites, an interceptor dispersal base and a number of other facilities, systems and people that put Nebraska in the forefront of the Cold War.
This Wikia will hopefully provide information regarding all aspects of military and civilian efforts in the state during that turbulent era.
