The article deals with the struggle of the citizens of San Juan County in southeastern Utah between 1981 and 1981. The anti-communist actions are reflected through a supply of uranium for the intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) against the Soviet Union, the possible hosting of evacuees in case of nuclear attacks under the Civil Defense Program (CDP), and the creation of ground observation posts that started in 1956. The creation of missile testing in the region is mentioned.
