SAC & Snark Missile Patches

    The First Atlas missile was accepted by the 576th SMS at Vandenberg AFB, on Sept. 1, 1959.  The next three Atlas squadrons were scheduled to become operational at Warren and Offutt AFBs between March and November, 1960.   They were only in operation a few years before replaced by the more efficient Titan and Minuteman Missiles.  The patches are rare. 
     By late 1964, all the Atlas were removed from their silos.  It seems that most, if not all, were sent to Vandenberg AFB, where they were used to launch satellites.
