In one excerpt, a man talks about his father’s poker game that was rattled by a submarine blast 15 miles away, off Jupiter Island. In another, a Florida resident talks about his first visit to the state, when he was a German prisoner of war at Camp Blanding. Another man remembers planning for Soviet missile attacks during the Cold War. An African-American man, now retired from the Army, remembers being personally affected by racial segregation in Florida during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
