#AceHistoryNews – Sept.18: On #ThisDayinHistory 1960, Fidel Castro arrives in New York City as the head of the Cuban delegation to the @UN #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7059 Castro’s visit stirred indignation and admiration from various sectors of American society, and was climaxed by his speech to the United Nations on Sept.26: By the time Castro arrived in New York City, relations between the United States and Cuba were rapidly deteriorating. Since taking power in January 1959, Castro had infuriated the American government with his policies of nationalizing U.S. companies and investments in Cuba……Some American officials, such as Vice President Richard Nixon, believed that Castro was leaning perilously toward communism……(Castro did not publicly proclaim his adherence to communism until late-1961, when he declared that he was a “Marxist-Leninist”.) In March 1960, President Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered the CIA to begin training Cuban exiles to overthrow Castro’s regime…..When the United States suspended the import of Cuban sugar in 1960, Castro’s government turned to the Soviet Union for economic assistance…..The Russians were happy to oblige. While in NYC, Castro and his entourage caused a sensation by deciding to stay at the Theresa Hotel in Harlem, and while there, Castro met with a number of African-American leaders, including Malcolm X and the poet Langston Hughes……..On September 26, Castro delivered a blistering attack on what he termed American “aggression&imperialism For over four hours, Castro lambasted U.S. policy toward Cuba and other nations in Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Castro’s visit and lengthy public denunciation marked the final breaking point in relations between the U.S. and Cuba. #FidelCastro #UN #UNGA #Cuba #AceHistoryNews

ON #ThisDay 1947 President Harry Truman signed the National Security Act that the U.S. military got a separa te Air Force for the first time in its history…….That innovation was effective Sept. 18, 1947 — 70 years ago this Monday #AFBday – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Sept.18: Though aircraft had proved their military use beyond a doubt in the World Wars (and far earlier), the pilots and others who made that war effort work had been part of a series of different organizations, largely under the supervision of the Army #AceHistoryDesk reports

It was not until President Harry Truman signed the National Security Act of 1947 that the U.S. military got a separate Air Force for the first time in its history…….That innovation was effective Sept. 18, 1947 — 70 years ago this Monday…… And, from the beginning, it was no secret that the Air Force was a desirable assignment for those in the military……..The appeal of the air was on full display in 1951, as documented by LIFE Magazine, when the possibility of being drafted for the Korean War sent young American men scrambling to volunteer for the military gigs they wanted before the choice was taken out of their hands……..Rather than serve as Army infantrymen, they figured, they could take to the skies……….(Or, even more appealing in some recruits’ eyes, they could stay safely on the ground taking care of the planes.) The result was a “recruit stampede,” as LIFE put it, that the still-young Air Force wasn’t quite prepared to handle………At Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, thousands more recruits than expected — three times more, in a 12-day period, than volunteered for the Army in a whole month — jammed the processing centers, leading to a shortage of everything from uniforms to space………It was clear to see how that rush to join up could cause problems for the military effort, as preference for the Air Force, followed by the Navy, could leave the Army wanting…….But it was also obvious that there was something about the Air Force that left these young men more eager to serve there than anywhere else……….Today, with more than 300,000 active-duty personnel in an all-volunteer Air Force, it’s clear that the allure remains #AceHistoryNews
