Abstract This classic episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series transports viewers to the summer of 1961 as President John F. Kennedy addresses the United States in a televised address to explain the significance of the situation in the now-divided city of Berlin, Germany. This video from the National Archives and Records Administration is a graphic portrayal of the steps this nation took to bring our armed forces to an advanced stage of readiness in case of further Soviet aggression.
