EVERGLADES CITY, FL - APRIL 08:  Ryan Meyer, Nike Missile Site Coordinator for Everglades National Park, stands next to a door leading to a bunker attached to one of three facilities that were used to store and potentially launch both conventional and nuclear tipped Nike missiles in reaction to any Russian attack in the Everglades National Park on April 8, 2010 near Everglades City, Florida. As U.S. President Barack Obama and President Dmitri A. Medvedev of Russia sign their nuclear arms control treaty today, relics like this former missile site are a reminder of how far the relationship between the United States and Russia has come. The missile base was built by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in 1963 at the height of the Cold War and was finally closed in 1979. Former workers whom the park service has interviewed say the site contained nuclear tip warheads that were ready to be fired if needed.  (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
