Memorial Day 1963: Standing where he would be buried

From historian Michael Beschloss, a glimpse of John F. Kennedy at Arlington Cemetery on Memorial Day 1963, one day after his last birthday.

The Washington Post reported:

“President Kennedy led the memorial observances by laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington. He was accompanied by his two-year-old son John Jr. who held tightly to the hand of a Secret Service agent.”

JFK was standing where he would be buried six months later.

Continuing the Vince Palamare tradition, my FB friend Brent P. Lyons recently went to Arlington Cemetery here in Washington where the 35th president is buried.

It is a moving place with s wonderful view of Washington. I confess I haven’t been there for too too many years, and I have no excuse. It is a 20 minute ride from my house.

Brent’s picture reminds me to go again soon.
