Two of the most visible symbols of Omaha's historic role at the heart of U.S. nuclear defense could be on their way out of Offutt Air Force Base.

Officials at the U.S. Strategic Command are discussing whether to move two towering, decommissioned nuclear missiles from the headquarters' front lawn.

"We're looking at better ways to reflect the total missions we conduct as an organization."

"I'm worried this is just another attempt to remove the memory of the SAC command from base,"
