  •  Thank you for this. (5+ / 0-)

    I remember reading in a book that one of the last orders JFK gave was to start pulling US advisers out of Vietnam and one of the first things LBJ did was stop the order. It said that after the Bay of Pigs JFK lost all appetite for conflict. I also think that, because JFK was actually in combat, he was super cautious about sending young men off to war. Wish I could remember the book.
    What a family the Kennedys were/are. Joe, the oldest son killed in a bombing run. JFK severely wounded. All avoidable with their wealth.

    I remember Mom crying when John and then Bobby were murdered.
