Unbeknownst to one another, Julio and Jose Castro had both enlisted in the military, the older brother with the United States, the younger with Cuba. As the U.S. and the Soviets inched closer to catastrophe 50 years ago this week, one brother stood in the trenches in Cuba while the other awaited orders in Miami. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz)
