Nike Missile Site Restoration Project


You can donate towards the restoration project with the below PayPal link or mail a check (payable to Civil Air Patrol) to Maryland Wing HQs, ATTN:  Nike Site Restoration, 3085 Hernwood Road, Woodstock, MD 21163.  Please indicate Nike Site on your check so your donations goes to only support the restoration project.




Your donation to the Nike missile site restoration project
will help preserve a piece of Maryland’s aerospace history.

Just $25 will help purchase tools for site clean up – brooms, brushes, shovels, and fuel for pumping the water out of the silos.

Just $50 will help purchase a pack of shingles to redo the roof on the original warhead assembly building or a can of primer/paint to keep the metal doors and elevators from degrading.

Your gift of $100 will purchase paint for the original pieces and buildings at the site.

Consider helping today – either with your monetary donation or with your time – both are needed!

If you are interested in helping preserve a little piece of Cold War history or have other questions, please contact CMSgt Tom Reed (treed@cap.gov).
