WARNING! THIS IS A SITE OF HONOR SO...

                                         

IMPORTANT:  A SPECIAL MESSAGE TO MY READERS

          

        

  My name is  GREG PAYNE, I'am the designer and Webmaster for this site  "PRESIDENT JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY NATIONAL HALL OF HONOR" I designed this site for the purpose of letting history speak for it'self by posting all of  President Kennedy's video tapes into historical chronological order allowing the reader to see the truth by letting Mr. Kennedy speak once again to give him the fair chance of redeeming his character from all the little History Rewriters or "Rumor Mongers" who have nothing better to do but to trash all of our national heroes and icons and poke fun at people and situations they have not the vaguest idea of what really happened, and that's why I wrote this site.

     I was fifteen years old when President Kennedy was in office during the Cuban Missel Crises and to all you little history rewriters and "Rumor Mongers" you people owe your very existance to Mr. Kennedy he gave his life and ended up dying in his loving wife Jackie's arms to keep this Country and the rest of the Free World free and safe by standing up to the U.S.S.R. Soviet Russia.  Russia brought nukes into Cuba for the reason of terminating all life in the United States!  Russia wanted Mr. Kennedy to take the bait 90 miles off our coast line, but Mr. Kennedy refused to take the bait and gave Moscow a 24 hour warning to get the hell out of Cuba before he took Moscow off the face of the earth!  Moscow finding out that they had been under survailance the whole time didn't expect the answers they got and ended up pulling out of Cuba this neclear show down esculated to defcon 2 one level from an all out full scale preemptive thurmal neclear attack and the show down lasted for thirteen days.  So all you little History rewriters you owe your very existance to President Kennedy.  This video is a tape of what could have happened if President Kennedy didn't act when he did nobody on earth would be here today!

I found this video posted with Mr. Kennedy's tapes and files it's video on the Cuban Missel Crises gone arye a video of a WWIII and Russia launches the first nuke on the United States, the next thing you'll see is the United States launches an all out retalitory neclear strike on Russia that brings the whole world to an end. So watch and see what almost happened!

 SOUTH PACIFIC THEATER

    

   Framed together are the Navy Marine Corps Medal and the Purple Heart.

The Navy Marine Corps Medal (on left) is an octagonal shaped medal depicting an eagle perched on a fouled anchor, beneath which is a globe and raised inscription "HEROISM", suspended from a blue, gold and scarlet ribbon.

The Purple Heart (on right) is a heart shaped decoration depicting the profile of George Washington set in purple enamel surrounded by a gold border, suspended from a purple silk ribbon with white borders.  At the top of the heart is the Washington Coat of Arms consisting of a white shield with two horizontal red bars below three red stars, set between sprays of green leaves.  The reverse shows a raised bronze heart and "FOR MILITARY MERIT".

The medals were presented to Lt. Kennedy in June 1944 for his heroics and injuries sustained in the rescue of the crew of PT 109 during WWII on August 2, 1943 when the motor torpedo boat was struck by a Japanese destroyer.

Notes:
* Not assigned to the PT-109 but went along on final mission.
Kennedy's original crew also included Maurice L. Kowal, Edmund T. Drewitch and Leon E. Drawdy. All three of these men were injured on previous patrols and were not on board when the PT-109 was sunk. Drewitch was injured on June 30, 1943 when a depth charge was dislodged and came through the deck landing on the bunk above him. Kowal and Drawdy were injured on July 19, 1943 by a Japanese
aircraft attack. All three men served under Kennedy later on the PT-59.
 

Kennedy had used his family influence to get into the war quickly. The Allies were in a campaign of island hopping since securing

Guadalcanal in a bloody battle in early 1943. Kennedy was assigned

PT-109 upon arriving at Tulagi. By August 1943, the Allies had

captured Rendovaand moved PT boat operations there. The US Army was driving the Japanese out of Munda airfield at New Georgia by August. All of the islands around Blackett Strait were still held by the Japanese.

In August 1943, Kennedy's PT-109 was sent out north on a night

mission through Ferguson Passage to Blackett Strait, and was one of

15 boats sent to intercept the Tokyo Express.[5]

In the PT Attack, 15 boats loaded with 60 torpedoes counted only a

few observed explosions.[6] However, of the thirty torpedoes fired by

PT boats from the four divisions not a single hit was scored.[7] Many of the torpedoes had exploded prematurely or ran at the wrong depth.

The boats were ordered to return when their torpedoes were

expended, but the boats with radar shot their torpedoes first. When

they left, remaining boats, such as PT-109, were left without radar,

and were not notified that other boats had engaged the enemy.[8]

PT-109, along with PT-162 and PT-169, were ordered to continue

patrol of the area in case the enemy ships returned.[9] Around 0200,

on a moonless night, Kennedy's boat was idling on one engine to avoid detection of her wake by Japanese aircraft.[10] With only about ten seconds warning, PT-109's crew realized they were squarely in the

path of the Japanese destroyer Amagiri, which was returning to Rabaul from Vila, Kolombangara after offloading supplies and 900 soldiers.[11] Amagiri was traveling at high speed in order to be safely back in

harbor before dawn, when Allied air patrols were likely to appear.

Amagiri

The crew spotted the destroyer bearing down on them at speeds reported by some sources as high as 30 or 40 kt (55 to 75 km/h). However, others believe it might have been as slow as 23 knots (43 km/h). With no time to get the engines up to speed, they were run down by the destroyer on 2 August 1943 in the Blackett Strait between Kolombangara and Arundel in the Solomon Islands near 8°06′44″S 156°54′20″E / 8.112140°S 156.905488°E / -8.112140; 156.905488.

Conflicting statements have been made as to whether the destroyer captain had spotted and steered towards the boat; author Donovan,

who interviewed members of the destroyer crew, believed the collision was not an accident, though other reports suggest the Amagiri's

captain never realized what happened till after the fact. Damage to a propeller slowed the destroyer's trip to its home base.[12]

PT-109 was cut in two. Seamen Andrew Jackson Kirksey and Harold W. Marney were lost, and two other members of the crew were badly injured. For such a catastrophic collision, explosion, and fire, it was a low loss rate compared to other boats that were hit by shell fire.

PT-109 was gravely damaged, with watertight compartments keeping only the forward hull afloat in a sea of flames.[13]

PT-169 launched two torpedoes that missed the destroyer and

PT-162's torpedoes failed to fire at all. Both boats then turned away from the scene of the action and returned to base without checking for survivors.

[edit] Survival

All of the nearby large islands had Japanese camps on them. The survivors carefully chose the tiny deserted Plum Pudding Island, southwest of Kolombangara Island. They placed their lantern, shoes,

and nonswimmers on one of the timbers used as a gun mount and

began kicking together to propel it. It took four hours for the survivors to reach their destination, 3.5 miles (5.6 km) away, braving the danger of sharks and crocodiles. Kennedy, who had been on the varsity swim team at Harvard University, used a life jacket strap clenched between

his teeth and towed his badly-burned senior enlisted machinist mate, MM1 Patrick McMahon.[14] The island was only a hundred yards in diameter, with no food or water. The crew had to hide from passing Japanese barge traffic. Kennedy swam about 4 kilometers more, to

Naru and Olasana islands in search of help and food. He then led his

men to Olasana Island, which had coconut trees and water.[15]

[edit] Rescue

The explosion on 2 August was spotted by an Australian coastwatcher, Sub Lieutenant Arthur Reginald Evans, who manned a secret

observation post at the top of the volcano on Kolombangara Island;

over ten thousand Japanese troops were garrisoned in the southeast. The Navy and its squadron of PT boats held a memorial service for the crew of PT-109 after reports were made of the large explosion.

However, Evans dispatched Solomon Islanders Biuku Gasa and Eroni Kumana in a dugout canoe to look for possible survivors after

decoding news that the explosion he had witnessed was probably

from the lost PT-109. These canoes were similar to those used for thousands of years by people in the Pacific and by Native Americans.

In retrospect, these were by far the oldest technology and smallest manned craft

used by the Allies in the war, but they could avoid detection by

Japanese ships and aircraft and, if spotted, would likely be taken for native fishermen.

Kennedy and his men survived for six days on coconuts before they

were found by the scouts. Gasa and Kumana disobeyed an order by stopping by Naru to investigate a Japanese wreck, from which they salvaged fuel and food. They first fled by canoe from Kennedy, who to them was simply a shouting stranger. On the next island, they pointed their Tommy guns at the rest of the crew since the only light-skinned people they expected to find were Japanese and they were not

familiar with either the language or the people. Gasa later said "All white people looked the same to me." Kennedy convinced them they were on the same side. The small canoe was not big enough for passengers. Though the Donovan book and movie depict Kennedy offering a coconut inscribed with a message, according to a National Geographic

interview, it was Gasa who suggested it and Kumana who climbed a coconut tree to pick one. Kennedy cut the following message on a coconut

The coconut with the carved message, cast in a paperweight.

NAURO ISL
COMMANDER... NATIVE KNOWS POS'IT...
HE CAN PILOT... 11 ALIVE
NEED SMALL BOAT... KENNEDY

This message was delivered at great risk through 35 nautical miles

(65 km) of hostile waters patrolled by the Japanese to the nearest Allied base at Rendova. Other coastwatcher natives who were caught had

been tortured and killed. Later, a canoe returned for Kennedy, taking him to the coastwatcher to coordinate the rescue. The PT 157, commanded by Lieutenant William Liebenow, was able to pick up the survivors. The arranged signal was four shots, but since Kennedy only had three bullets in his pistol, Evans gave him a Japanese rifle for the fourth signal shot. The sailors sang "Yes Jesus Loves Me" to pass the time. Gasa and Kumana received little notice or credit in military

reports, books, or movies until 2002 when they were interviewed by National Geographic shortly before Gasa's death.

The coconut shell was preserved in a glass container by Kennedy on

his desk during his presidency. It is now on display at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston, Massachusetts.

[edit] PT-59

PT-59 was one of the first PT boats converted to a gunboat primarily tasked with hunting down targets their own size or smaller, and was crewed by Kennedy and those from PT-109 who chose to stay in the

war rather than go home. On November 2, 1943, (in an incident which was portrayed as an action by PT-109 in the film PT-109) PT-59 went

on to rescue Marines ambushed during a raid on Choiseul Island. One gravely wounded Marine died in LT Kennedy's bunk aboard PT-59 that night.[16]

[edit] Aftermath

One of the most detailed accounts ever published appeared in The

New Yorker with the title "Survival," written by a reporter who interviewed Kennedy after the incident. Another account was printed

in Reader's Digest just before Kennedy's first Congressional run. The campaign reproduced the article and distributed it to potential voters.

 A campaign pin of PT-109 was distributed during his presidential campaign.[17]

Navy and Marine Corps Medal

Kennedy was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for his lifesaving actions following the collision; it was established in 1941

for heroic actions at risk of the person's own life but not involving actual combat.[18] During his presidency, Kennedy privately admitted to friends he didn't feel he deserved the medals he had received, because the PT 109 incident had been the result of a botched military operation that had cost the lives of two members of his crew. When asked by interviewers how he became a war hero, Kennedy's grim

reply was, "It was involuntary. They sank my boat."

[edit] The search for Kennedy's PT 109

The wreckage of PT-109 was located in May 2002 when a National Geographic expedition headed by Dr. Robert Ballard found a torpedo

tube from wreckage matching the description and location of

Kennedy's vessel in the Solomon Islands.[19] The Boat was actually identified by Dale Ridder (Beach Park, Illinois). The stern section was not found, but a search using remote vehicles found the forward

section, which had drifted south of the collision site. Much of the half-buried wreckage and grave site was left undisturbed in accordance

with Navy policy. At around this time, Max Kennedy also came to

present a bust of JFK to the islanders who had found Kennedy and his crew.

[edit] Crew

A standard uniform was blue dungarees with a white, round dixie cap

for enlisted sailors, washed khakis and service cap for officers. During General Quarters, the crew would man their battle stations wearing

dark blue kapok life vests and US Army/US Marine Corps-style steel helmets painted gray. The skipper's helmet would have stripes and an inverted star (approximating his dress uniform sleeve rank or

shoulder board insignia...normally that of LTJG or LT), while the other officer would be labeled "XO".

The crew aboard PT-109 on her last mission:

  • Lieutenant, junior grade (LTJG) John Fitzgerald Kennedy (Boston, Massachusetts), Commanding Officer ("CO" or "Skipper"). Became 35th President of the United States
  • Ensign (ENS) Leonard J. Thom (Sandusky, Ohio), Executive Officer ("exec" or "XO")
  • Ensign (ENS) George H. R. "Barney" Ross (Highland Park, Illinois); on board as an observer after losing his own boat, attempted to operate the 37mm gun but suffered from night blindness
  • Seaman 2/c Raymond Albert (Akron, Ohio) KIA 8 October 1943.
  • See [20]
  • Gunner's Mate 3/c (GM3) Charles A. "Bucky" Harris (Watertown, Massachusetts)
  • Motor Machinist's Mate 2/c (MM2) William Johnston (Dorchester, Massachusetts)
  • Torpedoman's Mate 2/c (TM2) Andrew Jackson Kirksey (Reynolds, Georgia) (killed in collision, listed as missing by National
  • Geographic account)
  • Radioman 2/c (RM2) John E. Maguire (Dobbs Ferry, New York)
  • Motor Machinist’s Mate 2/c (MM2) Harold William Marney (Springfield, Massachusetts) (killed in collision, manning turret closest to impact point)
  • Quartermaster 3/c (QM3) Edman Edgar Mauer (St. Louis, Missouri)
  • Motor Machinist's Mate 1/c (MM1) Patrick H. "Pappy" McMahon (Wyanet, Illinois) (Only man in engine room during collision, was badly burned, but recovered from his wounds)
  • Torpedoman's Mate 2/c (TM2) Ray L. Starkey (Garden Grove, California)
  • Motor Machinist's Mate 1/c (MM1) Gerard E. Zinser (Belleville, Illinois) (erroneously called "Gerald" in many publications). Mr. Zinser, the last living survivor, died in Florida on 21 August 2001.

[edit] Survivors

Gerard Zinser, the last survivor of PT-109, died in 2001. Both Solomon Islanders Biuki Gasa and Eroni Kumana were alive when visited by National Geographic in 2002. They were each presented with a gift

from the Kennedy family.

Biuki Gasa died late in August 2005, his passing noted only in a single blog by a relative. According to Time Pacific magazine, Gasa and Eroni were invited to Kennedy's inauguration. However, the island

authorities tricked Gasa into giving his trip to more important local officials. Gasa and Eroni gained a little fame only after being identified by National Geographic, but are among the most famous Solomon Islanders who ever lived. On 22 August 2007, Secretary of the Navy Donald C. Winter presented Eroni "Aaron" Kumana with the flag from USS Peleliu for his courageous efforts more than 60 years ago.

[edit] Legacy

In addition to a book, the episode of PT-109's sinking was also made into a 1963 movie, PT 109, starring Cliff Robertson. Though it had

some historical inaccuracies, such as the Navy searching for the boat rather than holding a memorial service for the crew, it was

nonetheless regarded as a fitting tribute to the events that transpired. Then-President Kennedy personally selected Robertson to play him in the film version.

A song entitled "PT-109" by Jimmy Dean rose to #8 on the pop music, and #3 on the country music charts in 1962, making it one of Dean's most successful recordings.

Tiny Plum Pudding Island was later renamed Kennedy Island. The

island caused a controversy when the government sold off the land to

a private investor who charged admission to tourists.

The 1958 movie South Pacific preceded PT-109 as a drama about Navy sailors in the Pacific theater. In 1961, Premiere Theater presented "Seven Against The Sea", a drama about a resourceful group of

stranded American PT boat crewmen hiding out on a South Pacific

island controlled by the Japanese Navy, a situation which would

appear to be inspired by the adventures of Kennedy and his men.[21] This later became the pilot of McHale's Navy, a successful television situation comedy series. One episode of the series had a 'cameo' appearance of a PT boat marked "109"

PT-109 was also a famous subjects of toy, plastic and RC model ships

in the 1960s, familiar to boys who grew up as Baby Boomers. It was

still a popular 1/72 scale Revell model kit available into the 21st century. Hasbro also released a special PT-109 edition John F.

Kennedy G.I. Joe action figure, dressed in Navy khakis with a

miniature version of the famous coconut shell.

The tale is much less familiar to later generations, as the VHS movie

was out of print in the US by 2006. It is available outside of the US as

a Video CD, but not yet as a DVD.

Spectrum Holobyte released a naval simulation game roughly based

on the events named PT-109 for the Apple Macintosh and MS-DOS-compatible computers in 1987. In the video game Battlestations

Midway, PT-109 is featured in the second mission of the US Campaign.

THE ASSASINATION AND THE PEOPLE BEHIND IT

   AS TO THE ASSASSINATION AND THE PEOPLE INVOLVED  BEHIND IT CAN GO STRAIGHT TO HELL WHERE THEY BELONG FOR WHAT THEY DID WAS UNFORGIVABLE BOTH IN THIS WORLD AND IN THE WORLD TO COME!

  THIS IS A SITE OF HONOR AND A SITE OF HONOR IT SHALL REMAIN FOR A MAN WHO SAVED OUR COUNTRY AND THE WORLD FROM AN ALL OUT THERMAL NECLEAR WAR, A MAN WHO HAD COMPASSION ON THE AMERICAN YOUTH AS WELL AS THE YOUTH OF THE WORLD.  MAY GOD BLESS YOU MR. KENNEDY AND CAROLINE TOO I'AM VERY CERTIAN THAT MOST PEOPLE FEEL THE SAME AS I FEEL THAT MR. KENNEDY WAS NOT A POLITICIAN, HE WAS A BORN LEADER A TRUE MAN OF  HONOR AND IN HONOR SHALL IT REMAIN!             

                

                               

SOME OF THE ALEDGED AND ACTUAL CULPRETS AS WE KNOW THEM TODAY

                                                

                                            Lee Harvey Oswald

         Alledged Assassin of President Kennedy

                                "Patsey"

                  

                      Jack Ruby (right) a local Night Club Owner

  goes into the Dallas Police Department on Prime

  Time Television and kills Lee Harvey Oswald in

  broad daylight with a "Snubnose 38" posed as a

  "disgruntaled citizen" who temporarly lost his

  mind over President Kennedy's Assassination.

  Ruby sits in jail with no prison sentence until he

  dies of cancer, but NO Justice is served on the

  behalf of President Kennedy!

   Ironically President Kennedy made this quote that

is quite profetic in nature...

      If anyone is crazy enough to want to kill a president of the United States, he can do it. All he must be prepared to do is give his life for the president's.
John F. Kennedy 

      Gave his life in exchange for the President's, that's exactly what happened to Oswald "IF" he really did do it!

                    

       

PRESIDENT JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY MEMORY'S HELD IN HONOR

                                                          

IF PRESIDENT KENNEDY HADNOT HAVE STOOD UP TO RUSSIA AS HE DID, HAD HE HAD FAILED IN ANYWAY, THEN HERE'S WHAT RUSSIA WAS GOING TO DO TO US!  OUR THIRTEEN DAYS IN OCTOBER OF 1962 WOULD HAVE ENDED, AND THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT RIGHT NOW TODAY WOULD HAVE BEEN A BURNED OUT CINDER, ALL LIFE WOULD HAVE BEEN TERMINATED AND NONE OF US WOULD HAVE BEEN HERE TODAY!  SO TO THOSE WHO LIKE TO MAKE FUN OF MR. KENNEDY BETTER HAD STOP AND RETHINK FOR THEY WOULD NEVER BEEN BORN NOT IN THIS WORLD OR IN THE WORLD TO COME HAD IT NOT BEEN FOR PRESIDENT JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY!
