  •  i saw kennedy... (6+ / 0-)

    when he arrived at macdill air force base in tampa on Nov 18, 1963. my school, boys academy was on the tarmac when he deplaned. macdill was the strategic air command back then and was considered a target for russian missles. we grew up with duck and cover and the schools basement held boxes of clothes and food supplies in case of an attack. we were one of the last cities to see him alive.
