Arlington VA. / National Cemetery Tips (16)

On November 23rd, 1963...

On November 23rd, 1963 President Kennedy was shot and killed. I was at work when I heard the news. We were all numb and didn't know what to say. All I remember is my male corpmen crying and all of us thinking there was going to be a terrible war because of this.

When I got back to my living quarters all the NAVY WAVES were in tears. All we could do was cry and think of the worse to come. We were all devasted and in shock.

All NAVY Personal were invitied to be in full dress and could stand in front of the lines as JFK's casket was brought through by a Horse Drawn Carraige. The Body of JFK was taken to Arlington National Cemetary.

I got to stand in the front line in my full dress NAVY uniform.

Painter's in the house

Inside Robert Lee Memorial (Arlington House) you'll see this painting room. Look at all the canvas and oil... there must have been a painter in Lee's family.
