I've been doing a bit of reading about the Cuban Missile Crisis. It was before my time, but I'm wondering if any of the Old & Bold were serving when it happened. If anybody has any good stories, anecdotes or links I'd be interested to hear them. I'm curious how close we actually came to going to war and what active preparations (if any) were made. Most people I've spoken to said they were sat in Germany shitting bricks and frantically reading up on tactical nukes.
