MDC honors JFK today !!
A year of events marking the 100th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s birth is drawing to a close exactly 54 years after his assassination.
National park rangers will lay a wreath outside Kennedy’s childhood home in Brookline, Massachusetts, and a 21-gun salute by an honor guard will follow.
Wednesday’s solemn commemorations fall on the anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.
The observances are being held at what is now known as the John Fitzgerald Kennedy National Historic Site administered by the National Park Service.
The nation’s 35th president was born in the leafy Boston suburb on May 29, 1917.
MDC shares a little inside of who JFK was:
*He was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for heroism during World War II.
*John F. Kennedy is the youngest ever elected President of the United States
* He established the Peace Corps in 1961
* JFK averted nuclear war through his negotiations with Soviet leader Khrushchev (MDC says, he had Russia dismantle their weapons.)
* He was responsible for the Equal Pay Act of 1963
