So, fortunately, nuclear weapons degrade rather quickly (literally within 5-20 years depending how well they are maintained), and can become practically harmless after that (especially if they're underwater). So those lost nukes aren't a threat to anyone at this point.

However, it is kind of disconcerting that we lost them to begin with.... And even more so that we know the USSR lied about losing nukes, and lost a whole bunch of them after the USSR fell...

America is clearly known as the most responsible of countries

So I looked it up. Apparently the American military has admitted to stealing 6 nuclear weapons since 1950.
Not to make anyone nervous....
At all....

We had two of them get dropped in NC and they left one of them where it fell because it was too wet out. ( bit of an exaggeration but not much)

These incidents where a nuke armed aircraft either crashes or is forced to ditch a nuke are refereed to as "Broken Arrows". The History Guy on Youtube has a great video compiling all the times he's done a video on the subject: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJyf_M611cw
