Titan I Missile.

Confederate Nuclear Missile

Field review by the editors.

Cordele, Georgia

Along I-75, drivers can glimpse a relic of the Cold War, a Titan I missile. This retired delivery system for nuclear payloads has stood outside Cordele since July 17, 1969, when the local Rotary Club christened it. Rotary Club president and missile-lover John S. Pate Jr. managed to arrange for the 98-ft. ballistic weapon to be donated by the US government, dismantled in California, and shipped to Warner Robins Air Force Base before being trucked here.

A helpful hand-lettered sign at its base describes all this, as well as claiming "This is the site of Confederate Air Force Pad No. 1."

There's a Krystal fast food restaurant adjacent to the missile.
