Watching the Discovery Channel today on military techology and it noted the location of our main missle silos. As it seems their location is common knowledge... do we have "secret" missle silos spread around the country? I would think so but wonder how easy they would be to hide.

Nope, what you see is what you get. There are no secret missle silos around the country. All the ground based ICBM's are based at 3 bases. Minot AFB in ND, Malmstrom AFB in Montana, and F.E. Warren AFB in Wyoming....Trust me, there are more than enough in the ground at these sites than we would ever need....

If we knew about them they wouldn't be "secret".

But just to think about, the US dismanteled the Nike Herculese complex of SAMs, some nuclear tipped, ringing all our cities and bases in the middle of the Cold War, with no aparent replacement... or not...

Many of those old Nike sites are now in local, state, and civilian federal agency government hands in a variety of uses -- record storage and archive, warehouses, etc. At least one was used as a fire station. A few are still open for tours. Local newspapers and TV stations occasionally do a human interest story on them. I recall a story about one converted to a private residence.

I have allways wondered, are there a lot of unused silos? Or do we use all 500 or so that we have loaded, with no spares? It seems there have been a lot of bases closed, but I also remember under Bush 1, that we went to 1056 to about 550 at the end of the cold war.

^ look around on the internet, all kinds of people taking expeditions into straight up abandoned titan 1 and atlas-e or f bases. I would like to think there are (or were during the cold war) secret missile silos who's location was not advertised/acknowledged in any sort of way, I would kind of think there would have to be. look up on google this guys blog about a "minuteman complex" in floyd county, va. It talks about some secretive stuff that went down in the blue ridge mtns of va in the 60s, and he later found it in the sort of secret as a congressional aide. Turns out it was only a communications/relay station for the minuteman system, but nonetheless it was constructed out of secrecy, and never acknowledged to exist, I even put in a FOIA request on it only to be given the run around then never answered.

www.missilebases.com shows one of these sites converted to a home. pretty cool. most of the abandoned ones get flooded and are safety hazards.
