ORDER ANNOUNCED ON THIS DAY IN 1950

Truman orders air and naval support for South Korea... | Sutori

On June 27, 1950, President Harry S. Truman announced he is ordering U.S.
air and naval forces to
South Korea to aid the democratic nation in repulsing
an invasion by communist
North Korea. The United States was undertaking
the major military operation, he explained, to enforce a United Nations
resolution calling for an end to hostilities, and to stem the spread of
communism in Asia. In addition to ordering U.S. forces to Korea, Truman
also deployed the U.S. 7th Fleet to Formosa (Taiwan) to guard against
invasion by communist China and ordered an acceleration of military aid
to French forces fighting communist guerrillas in Vietnam.

BERLIN AIRLIFT BEGAN ON THIS DAY IN 1948

Berlin blockade | Overview, Significance, History, & Facts ...
On June 26, 1948, U.S. and British pilots begin delivering food and
supplies by airplane to Berlin after the city is isolated by a Soviet
Union blockade.


When
World War II ended in 1945, defeated Germany was divided into Soviet, American, British and French zones of occupation. The city of Berlin, though located within the Soviet zone of occupation, was also split into four sectors,
with the Allies taking the western part of the city and the Soviets the eastern.

In June 1948, Josef Stalin’s government attempted to consolidate control of
the city by cutting off all land and sea routes to West Berlin in order to
pressure the Allies to evacuate. As a result, beginning on June 24 the
western section of Berlin and its 2 million people were deprived of food,
heating fuel and other crucial supplies.
