Though he was only 16, he skipped school to go to an Army Recruiting Office the morning after President Kennedy's speech revealed Russian missiles in Cuba. Because he was underage, his parents had to give permission for him to enlist. Luckily, they did. And soon Carter found himself manning a missile site in the 'Glades -- one of four hastily erected around South Florida in the fall of '62 (pictured in above photos taken by Carter).<br> Fri, 26 Oct 2012 16:00:00 +0000 Rich Halten 3468 at http://wlrn.org South Florida In The Cross-Hairs: Charles Carter
