    Yesterday (NOV 25th) marked the 48th anniversary of the funeral of President John F. Kennedy. Keith Clark, Army Bugler, sounded Taps at the conclusion of the three-day State Funeral. Here is the story of the “Broken Note”:

    Thanks for the post! A few years ago my son and I went to the 6th Floor Museum. Although I wasn't even born when Kennedy was assassinated, I found respect for him from what I read about him there.

    As usual, Jari, you keep us abreast of integral dates in our lives. I listen to your tribute CD, "The Day is Done" on a daily basis along with Clark's rendition of taps at the funeral.

    Thank you for the information.
