    Pres. Johnson served in the Pacific as a civilian and was awarded an unauthorized Silver Star which he wore in a lapel and from what I recall he was so forceful in the late 50s as the "Master of the Senate", v.p. and then president no one in the Pentagon dared confront him about the award. JFK as a PT boat skipper in 1943 should have been awarded a Navy Cross for his actions. His brother, Joe Jr. died in 1944 when his B24 bomber exploded over the English channel.

    After Ike, Kennedy was the youngest president to take office and was in my opinion the best president we have ever had in a very scary time. His decision to use a blockade during the Cuban missile crises was a possible life saver for millions of people. It is a tragedy that today we find ourselves at a point of "THREE MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT AGAIN" Our so called Commander and Chief has brought us to this state of chaos and I cannot be more frank about it. Getting into who killed JFK is also I scary picture so I will not go there. However if it is true that Johnson who is said to have hated JFK and was possibly involved in his assassination is very scary. I was only 2 years old so I cannot say with any reasonable doubt who or why he was executed but it saddens me. Sorry for the way I am commenting on this issue but it still bothers me.
