Speaker Series: Above & Beyond: JFK and the U-2 Pilots during the Cuban Missile Crisis with Michael Tougias
THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2018 - 6:00PM
6:00 pm  Reception (with hors d'oeuvre and a cash bar)
7:00 pm  Lecture
In this multimedia presentation based on his soon-to-be-published book, New York Times bestselling author Michael J. Tougias first chronicles the thirteen harrowing days of the Cuban Missile Crisis and then outlines the steps President Kennedy made to reach a decision on a course of action.

Special emphasis is given to the heroes of the crisis: the U-2 pilots who flew unarmed over Cuba to secure the photographic proof that the Soviets were installing nuclear missiles on the island. These pilots helped President Kennedy achieve a difficult objective: have the nuclear missiles removed from Cuba without triggering Armageddon.

This riveting talk is not to be missed!
