The Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum's newest exhibit, "Strategic Air Command in 100 Artifacts," takes you through a 46-year span that is the Strategic Air Command.

Artifacts were picked by curator Brian York, and take you through the Berlin Blockade, Korean War, Cuban Missile Crisis, and Vietnam War. Throughout the Cold War, SAC kept a nuclear WWIII from erupting. The exhibit features artifacts from SAC's first Commanding General's and first Senior Enlisted Advisor's uniforms, trophies from the SAC Bombing and Navigation Competition, Soviet Union uniform and propaganda items, and a piece of the Berlin wall.

Upfront at 4's Lindsey Theis found out how they picked the items. Watch the video for more.
