The Search for Kennedy's PT 109

The Search for Kennedy's PT 109
55:16 | 2008

Categories: Documentary, Politics, War, History

At the height of the Second World War, a young Navy Lieutenant stood at the helm of a U.S. patrol boat and in one ill-starred night made his mark in the annals of history. That young man later became on of the most popular Presidents of the US-John Fitzgerald Kennedy. In The Search for Kennedy's PT 109, National Geographic reveals the true story behind the legend-a more complex, more intriguing tale than we were ever led to believe.

From what I understand, Kennedy did not have one day of training. He was turned down by all the branches of service. He went to his daddy and boo hoo'ed that he could not get in the service. He wanted some military background for his political career. So his rich daddy pulled some strings and got him in. Kennedy was given an officers rank because he was from a rich family and sent to a part of the Pacific that they thought would be a safe place for him. He was also given command of the PT boat. He did not volunteer. It was all he could get because he was untrained. His only skill was sailing around on his sail boat back home. They put the lives of those poor men at risk simply because Kennedy wanted a political career. I have often wondered if he was killed by a member of the family of one of those men that were killed that night. You never know.
