Keep in mind that all military hardware eventually gets mothballed. So they actually want to use some, if anything, just to train the team. If you don't use that patriot missile which you've already bought.. it's just gonna go bad anyways..
word of advice - try not to inhale excessively during the soldering phase. It may make you unnecessary giddy [jk - it's not good fo ryou]. A breathing pattern in which you exhale when you solder is generally a good long term health-related practice.
