Cold War; "The Kennedy Bunker"

Good morning all,

Article about a JFK Cold War bunker on Nantucket Island.

Note the article's historical approach: "the site of a now-defunct Navy submarine surveillance base,..".

Note the reference to "jet assist take off". This was more often called by it acronym: JATO and then the later "JASU"; jet-assisted starting unit. Don't remember if acronyms were correctly current tense or past tense.
