Into the bunker

We don't really think about them that much anymore, but they're out there. Men and women sitting in underground bunkers, ready to launch nuclear missiles and "mutually assured destruction." Little is known about the missileers, most of our images of life in the bunker comes from movies like War Games. Hear stories of the launch control center from John Gazelius and John Krumm, who both served as launch officers.
