Soldiers from 1st Space Company, 1st Space Battalion participate in the Adopt-a-Missile workday at the Peterson Air and Space Museum June 11. The Soldiers who participated in the event for the first time gave a much needed cleaning to the museum's Nike Ajax surface to air missile display. The Nike Ajax was the U.S. Army's first operational guided surface to air missile, and saw Cold War service defending U.S. cities from air attack from 1954 to 1963. The museum has two other Army surface-to-air missiles on display, a HAWK system and a Nike Hercules.
