I was stationed at the Nike Hercules site at Dyess AFB (Abilene, TX) from 1961 until 1963. The launching area was photographed for the 1963 Abilene phone book. As you can see, the missile is above ground surrounded by large berms. The missiles were stored horizontally and elevated for firing.
I remember that phone book. While you were protecting the country during those years, I was helping Timex build watches at their plant in Abilene. My first real job.
