Age 10

Similar to the first World War, Florida's location and temperature served as an ideal location for military training; in fact, Florida would end up having 172 military installations. As a result of World War II growth, Camp Blanding became the fourth largest city in Florida, capable of housing over 55,000 soldiers. Many Floridians sacrificed their lives among other Americans to win the war; it's estimated that about 3,000 U.S. deaths were from Floridian troops.
1948 · The Beginning of the Cold War

Age 17

The Berlin Blockade was the first major crises of the Cold War. The Soviet Union blocked all access to the sectors of Berlin under Western control and offered to drop the blockade if the newly introduced Deutsche Mark was removed from West Berlin. The Berlin Blockade showed the different ideological and economic visions for postwar Europe. Even though there wasn't any fire fight during the cold war, many of these skirmishes arose and almost caused nuclear war on multiple occasions.
