        Maybe I should explain myself better. We were in the midst of the cold war. Not so many
        months earlier the Communists had tried to do to the Dominican Republic what they’d tried
        in Cuba. But we were ready that time. We had an alert pad with with a wings of B-52s loaded with nearly 50 H-bombs cocked
        and ready to be in the air in less than ten minutes.

        My first thought was we had taken a nuclear strike – light travels fastest.
