Friday July 26

Speaker: John Landry – Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum San Diego

Topic: The 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis


For 17 years, between 1945 and 1962, the world watched the U.S. and Russia engage in a dangerous game of “Diplomatic Brinkmanship”. And ... in 1962 the game turned deadly with a showdown in Cuba.  The U.S. is threatened with Russian Nuclear Missiles installed in Cuba just 100 miles South of Miami, FL.  In this presentation, you will learn of many “perilous tipping points” in the conflict and relive the gut-wrenching decisions played out in the thermonuclear poker game.  John Landry is a Navy Veteran and participated in the blockade of Cuba as the Antisubmarine Warfare (ASW) officer on the Destroyer USS Wren DD 568.  See John Landry’s  recent talk to eaH on eaH’s YouTube Channel  “The Battle of Coral Sea”
