Major Rudolf Anderson Jr. Memorial

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Missile Crisis – a time when the world was close to a massive global nuclear war.   A local, Major Rudolf Anderson was shot down on October 27, 1962.   He and his fellow pilots played a  key role in defusing the situation.   The memorial was reworked to commemorate their service and explain the story of the Cuban missile crisis in a series of storyboards surrounding the display.   A dedication ceremony was held on Saturday October 27.
