Newstalgia Memorial Day 2012 - JFK Address at the Dedication Of The Memorial To The Missing - Battery Park, New York - May 23, 1963.
May 28, 2012

JFK: Knew war. Knew loss.

In honor of Memorial day this year, I will be running some addresses honoring the dead and missing from wars we've been involved in.

Starting off with President Kennedy's Dedication of The Memorial To The Missing from May 23, 1963, given at Battery Park, New York.

A short address - but timely.

Don't forget the reason you have the day off.
