John F. Kennedy’s primary objective was to defend the interest against the Soviet Union’s extension of communism. In the year 1961 Kennedy authorized a disastrous Bay of Pig invasion which was a failed attempt to coups the communist leader Fidel Castro. After meeting with the Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev who threatened to cut off the U.S access to Berlin. At the end of the World War II, the USSR was given to the Eastern Berlin.

Accordingly, Kennedy added to the barrier spending plan by expanding intercontinental ballistic rocket powers. He added to the Air Force and Reserves, and five new armed force divisions.

The allotment was $266 million higher than Kennedy asked for since Congress gave $695 million more than he had requested long-extend plane improvement and generation and $59 million more than his solicitations for supporting Air Force and Army Reserves and National Guard.

Decreases in some Presidential solicitations, particularly a 2 percent no matter how you look at it slice in acquirement subsidizes intended to energize Pentagon cost awareness, brought the net increment over Mr. Kennedy's recommendations to $266 million.
