I had just turned 12, no interest in politics except in the school yard but remember being mildly curious about this young enthusiastic president of a neighbor I didn't know a whole heck of a lot about. November 22 is burned into my brain though.

Sweating and soldiering down in the Panama Canal Zone.

Living in the Canal Zone with my folks (Only 8 at the time). We did spend a good bit of the summers touring Central America in a VW bus "enhanced" to have some camping equipment. My first introduction to RV'ing.

DBol -

I had to laugh (not in a critical way) about the first comment in your post...about being 15 and worried about the religion of the new President.........because

I was 11 years old and being brought up in West Texas in a Presbyterian home...I had NEVER met a Catholic. Didn't know what one was! I was also worried about the President's religion because I had heard somewhere that Catholics had to eat fish on Friday...every Friday.....if a person was Catholic, they had to eat fish...period...that was their religion!

I was afraid that when JFK became President that he would make it a law that every American would have to eat fish every Friday

.....and I hate fish!
