Thank you, I'll have to get it. Tell me one thing though as you are reading it. Does it indicate that it had anything to do with Kennedy wanting to pull out of Vietnam?

It's just amazing the memories I have of that time. It was devastating, even for a 9 year old. The whole world stopped. Adults were crying and eyes were glued to the TV for 4 days. Watching another man get shot, this time on live TV was scary. Watching a 3 year old salute his father was heartbreaking. Watching his sister reach under the flag and touch her fathers casket also heartbreaking. Just a mind boggling time that was difficult to grasp.
