Morning Man Classic: John F. Kennedy
John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was born 106 years ago today.
The only president to win a Purple Heart, we will never, ever forget him.
Here are a some of photos of JFK from his pre-presidential days which ended tragically on that day in Dallas in 1963 when JFK was just 46.
I’ve included several photos of JFK with his gay best friend Lem Billings who he met at Choate, an elite preparatory school, in the fall of 1933. Billingd was a prep school roommate of Kennedy, an usher at his wedding and a campaigner for his successful 1960 presidential bid. Joseph Kennedy Sr. called him “my second son,” and he sometimes acted as escort for several of the Kennedy women. Billings served with Sargent Shriver as a trustee for the Kennedy family trusts.
