WDET (the Detroit public radio station) has been broadcasting stories all week regarding John F. Kennedy and connections to Detroit/Michigan.
Yesterday or the day before, they talked about the first mention of a service corps (what would become the Peace Corps) occurring during a campaign stop in 1960 at 2 AM in Ann Arbor, MI.
Today, they interviewed the son of a Secret Service agent who was in Dallas on 11/22/63. The son was a senior in HS at the time.
After everything was all over, he and his mother picked his dad up from the White House, and his dad immediately typed up a report of the day's events at their home.
His dad let him read it. He was the first person to read the Secret Service's initial report on the day's events.
The son lives in East Lansing, MI.
