Someday….

We visited the National Park Service Minute Man Site in South Dakota today. We had previously toured the facilities at one near Fargo North Dakota last year. This time, we skipped the underground tour of the control facility and focused on the silo viewing and learning from Ranger Brent Cogswell many details of his life serving with the Minute Man project. We have a better understanding of this program now. We also watched an interesting film at the visitor center which I have linked below.

  1. KARENE AND WARREN, a wonderful visit and really appreciated the documentary 30-minute video link. Thank you. I don’t think you know this, but I helped pull together an 11-minute video on “A World Free of Nuclear Weapons – A Call to Action.” Here’s the link: https://www.voices-uri.org/act
    LOVE YA and love the journey with you!
