Important Announcement

We would like to thank our loyal fellow members of the Nike Historical Society for your continued support over the years. We will be closing the Society, including the store, as of March 31, 2024. We have acquired a large repository of Nike technical information. The web site will continue to be available. It has been our pleasure to keep the legacy of the Nike missile's contribution of the successful conclusion to the Cold War.

The Nike Historical Society, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, was founded to preserve in history the critical role Nike Missile Systems played in the air defense of our nation and other nations throughout the free world. The primary focus of the Society is to provide technical assistance and support to organizations for restoration projects and/or historical legends. The Society also insures that accurate and proper interpretations of the Nike Missile System are adhered to. In addition, the Society, through the site historian, is available to answer questions pertaining to the Nike system.

All profits that the Nike Historical Society makes from sales through the online store will be spent to further the goals (stated above) of the Society.

“Can You Picture This?”

How many times have you tried to picture something from your youth? Sometimes a picture forms when you smell a familiar smell or hear a familiar tune on the radio. What brings back the memory? Don't you sometimes just wish you had those pictures always at the ready whenever you want to see them in your minds eye? I know most of us wish we could, especially those of us that served in the Army Air Defense Command.  Now you can get something to show your friends and family. Al Kellogg, a Nike Hercules VET who served at C Battery, 2nd of the 51st Arty, San Rafael, California is offering  two prints of his pen and ink work. These prints are the beginning of a series of prints depicting the Nike story. The first of the series depicts a Nike Hercules Launching Area, with the IFC in the background. The second in this series is a wonderful assemblage of an IFC. These 8.5" by 11" pen and inks would be great for your wall or desk. Get your memory back as soon as you can. As you know, if you can remember, we were not allowed to take pictures or make drawings of our sites when we were there. You can have your very own NOW. These wonderful pen and inks are popular, so get yours now.

You can purchase a signed unframed copy of this print for only $25.
