        JFK Signing the Proclamation for the Interdiction of the Delivery of Offensive Weapons to Cuba

        In October 1962, a U.S. spy plane photographed nuclear missile sites being built by the Soviet Union on the island of Cuba. President John F. Kennedy decided to place a naval blockade, or a ring of ships, around Cuba to prevent the Soviets from bringing in more military supplies. He also demanded the removal of the missiles and the dismantling of the sites. This photograph shows President Kennedy signing the proclamation of naval quarantine of Cuba on October 23, 1962.
