US Navy 1960s
The golden anniversary of naval aviation was celebrated in 1961 along with a new stature of the fleet’s air arm as an effective fighting force. One nuclear-powered and two conventionally-powered attack carriers joined the operating forces, with two additional attack carriers commissioned by the end of the decade.
During the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Navy exerted its traditional role of sea control by imposing a naval blockade that proved instrumental in averting global thermonuclear war. The round-the-world cruise of a nuclear-powered task force and operations in the Indian Ocean carried the flag into foreign ports. Naval forces responded to crises in Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and Berlin. Ships and aircraft aided the stricken when hurricanes, typhoons, and earthquakes struck in widely distant points.
