Re: [coldwarcomms] The End
- I used to have a copy of a clear text message standing down SAC from
full-time alert. This was in the early 90's- some of you may have seen the
same mesage (I think I copied it from an issue of MONITORING TIMES). It
was a real message as far as I could see, and in my opinion would really
represent the "End" of the Cold War. I suppose another date would be the
stand down of alert "Looking Glass" flights as well which also happened in
the very early 90's as I recall.
On another note, has anyone read "BIG RED" yet? The excerpt about SSBN
launch procedures in a recent TIME magazine was great.
