Subject: RE: Kennedy Assassination
It has been a long time since November the 22nd 1963.At that time Iwas the Elected State Chaplain of the Veterans Of foreign Wars and I got a letter from President Johnson for all Chaplains of the Veterans of foreign wars to have a special tribute or program honoring this PresidentI did put together some inspiring words and I had the State Department Commander to call a special meeting of the Department Council members and we did honor John Fitzgerald Kennnedy witht the proper ceremony.I also sent this memorial to a Natiomal Orginiziation and was awarded $600.00 for the best memorial or essay that was submitted.I will not bore the members of something I wrote 43 years ago.I also have the book honoring him called the Passing Of The Torch Plus and 2 different Newspapers with all the gory details.Louie Roy
