This Day in History: President John F. Kennedy on Relations with USSR

This Day in History: President John F. Kennedy on Relations with USSR

Geodesic Dome Homes in Massachusetts by Realtor Michael MahoneyOn October 6, 1961 President Kennedy was advising the citizens of the United States on the threats with USSR.

President John F. Kennedy, speaking on civil defense, advises American families to build bomb shelters to protect them from atomic fallout in the event of a nuclear exchange with the Soviet Union. Kennedy also assured the public that the U.S. civil defense program would soon begin providing such protection for every American. Only one year later, true to Kennedy’s fears, the world hovered on the brink of full-scale nuclear war when the Cuban Missile Crisis erupted over the USSR’s placement of nuclear missiles in Cuba. During the tense 13-day crisis, some Americans prepared for nuclear war by buying up canned goods and completing last-minute work on their backyard bomb shelters.
