  1. TSBD Photos

    Can anyone tell me the background to the photographs taken inside the TSBD, especially when they were taken. So far the info I got from Ed Ledoux regarding the re-enactments are: All re-enactments are, November 25th1963:- Time/Life. Not considered to be a legal recreation. December 2nd – 4th 1963:- The Secret Service February 7th1964:- The FBI May 20 -25 1964:- The Warren Commission, carried out for them by the FBI Then I got this pic from Denis M. What I am trying to ascertain is the time frame between the event and the pix of the 2nd floor. Thanks for any helpful info!
  2. FYI.... THOMAS LEMUEL "Lem" JOHNS has passed-on. On 11-22-63 he was one of the Secret Service Agent's riding within Dealey Plaza in an enclosed car behind then-Vice President LYNDON JOHNSON. JOHNS stated to the HSCA that, "the first two [audible muzzle blasts and/or mechanically suppress-fired bullet bow shock N-waves] sounded like they were on the side of me towards the grassy knoll" [RIF 180-10074-10079]. JOHNS remembered hearing/could hear a total of 3 blasts and/or shockwaves that sounded relatively evenly-spaced apart. JOHNS stated to VINCE PALAMARA in 2004 that he was NOT the agent that DP-witness/Dallas police patrolman JOE MARSHALL SMITH soon encountered behind the grassy knoll picket fence. DP-witness/NBC movie camera-filmer DAVE WIEGMAN stated to GARY MACK that while WIEGMAN was on foot in Dealey Plaza during and in the immediate aftermath of the shots, WIEGMAN did NOT ever see JOHNS up on the grassy knoll hill. Here is Mr. JOHN's obituary in the Washington Post.... http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/obituaries/former-secret-service-agent-lem-johns-dies-at-88/2014/05/11/193327d0-d925-11e3-bda1-9b46b2066796_story.html <QUOTE> Former Secret Service agent Lem Johns dies at 88 Cecil Stoughton/AP - Lem Johns, with dark hair, stands partially obscured behind Jacqueline Kennedy, right, as President Lyndon Johnson takes the oath of office on Air Force One in 1963. By Terence McArdle Lem Johns, a Secret Service agent who guarded Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson during the Kennedy assassination, returned on Air Force One to Washington as Johnson was sworn in as president, and later headed Johnson’s presidential security detail, died Saturday at his home in Hoover, Ala. He was 88. His death was announced by his grandson, Michael Johns, according to the Associated Press. On Nov, 22, 1963, the day of John F. Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, Mr. Johns was one of three Secret Service agents riding in a convertible behind Vice President Johnson and his wife, Lady Bird, in the presidential motorcade. Agent Jerry Kivett drove the agents’ car and monitored radio reports of the parade. Suddenly, they heard the first two shots. Though unsure whether he had heard gunshots, vehicle backfire or firecrackers, Mr. Johns jumped from the security car and made a dash for the car carrying Johnson. However, after a third shot, the entire motorcade sped up. Mr. Johns, on foot, was left behind on the street. Rufus Youngblood, the chief agent in the Johnson security detail, used his body to cover the vice president and Mrs. Johnson as their car followed the Kennedy vehicle and a Secret Service car to Parkland Hospital. Amid the chaos, Mr. Johns climbed aboard a car carrying photographers, then moved to the sidecar of a police motorcycle en route to Parkland. He found Johnson and the other Secret Service agents at the hospital, waiting as surgeons worked on Kennedy. Texas Gov. John B. Connally also was wounded but survived. When Kennedy died, an unmarked police cruiser took Johnson and agent Youngblood to Love Field where Air Force One waited to fly Johnson to Washington. Mr. Johns, who had been seeking a secure hospital exit for Johnson and Youngblood, had to leave for the airport in another police car. Once at the airport, Mr. Johns screened all those who boarded Air Force One while awaiting the arrival of first lady Jacqueline Kennedy and the casket carrying the president’s body. There were concerns about the possibility of an attempt on Johnson’s life. Mr. Johns was among those gathered in the Air Force One stateroom when Johnson was sworn in as president. In White House photographer Cecil Stoughton’s photo — perhaps the most famous picture ever taken aboard Air Force One — Mr. Johns stands behind Mrs. Kennedy as Johnson takes the oath of office. The Treasury Department, then in charge of the Secret Service, gave Mr. Johns an award for his actions on that day. He advanced to chief of the president’s detail in 1965, and assistant director of the Secret Service in overall charge of the protective forces in December 1967. During the Vietnam War, the Secret Service found itself on the front lines of violent anti-Johnson demonstrations. During a 1966 presidential trip to Melbourne, Australia, protesters drenched Mr. Johns and Youngblood in paint intended for the president. Another Secret Service agent, Bob Taylor, had his foot run over while getting between demonstrators and the presidential car during the melee. Mr. Johns left Washington during the Nixon presidency but returned to work as administrative chief and security director for Joseph A. Califano Jr., then secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter. Thomas Lemuel Johns was born in Birmingham, Ala., on Dec. 11, 1925. Mr. Johns served in naval aviation during World War II and then worked as a Birmingham firefighter. He graduated from Howard College (now Samford University) near Birmingham and served as a criminal investigator for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. He joined the Secret Service in 1954 and served on President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s security detail during the last two years of the Eisenhower administration. According to the New York Times, survivors include his wife, Nita; a son, Jeff; three grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. Three generations of the Johns family have served in the Secret Service. In addition to Mr. Johns, son Jeff was on President Ronald Reagan’s security detail and grandson Michael was on details for Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama through 2010. In 1998, Justice and Treasury department lawyers were considering legislation to exempt Secret Service agents from subpoenas regarding personal and political information overhead during their protective duties. Mr. Johns favored such a law and tried to clarify the types of information that agents could be called to provide. “If an agent witnesses a criminal act,” he told Newsday, “I don’t see that we can say we refuse to testify. But if something is in the realm of a personal or professional confidence, that should be exempt.” He added, “You don’t ever want the president to tell you when you’re leading him to the presidential limousine: ‘We’re going to be talking about some top-secret stuff today. So we’re going to take a cab.’ ” CLARIFICATION: The caption with the photograph accompanying this story has been changed to indicate where Mr. Johns is standing. An earlier version accurately said he was behind Jacqueline Kennedy but did not specify where. <END QUOTE> Best Regards in Research, + ++Don Donald Roberdeau United States Navy U.S.S. John F.

  6. Good Day.... FYI.... http://www.dailymail...nstruction.html <QUOTE> Found: The Only Full-color Footage of Remarkable JFK Assassination Reconstruction School project leads principal to previously unseen video of assassination re-enactment Video had been sitting in the Lemons' kitchen cupboard for more than four decades City of Dallas planning ceremony with the tolling of church bells, a moment of silence and readings from JFK's most famous speeches 45-minute memorial will be free and open to the public By DAILY MAIL REPORTER PUBLISHED: 20:00 EST, 21 November 2012 | UPDATED: 23:18 EST, 21 November 2012 A school project centered around the assassination of President John F. Kennedy has unearthed a previously unseen video - a re-enactment of one of America's most historic moments. Seventh-grader Alyssa Leverton immersed herself in all things JFK for a school project about his death and the conspiracy theories that followed. The report was so well done that it was featured at a state competition, a feather in the cap of Miss Leverton's principal Mike Merrell, who boasted about the comprehensive assignment to anyone who would listen. Reconstruction: The video shows an agent posing as John F. Kennedy, with markings showing where the president had been shot PHOTO http://i.dailymail.c...239_634x469.jpg Catalyst: The discovery stemmed from a school project by seventh-grader Alyssa Leverton, who had immersed herself in all things Kennedy for the report Scene of the crime: Bobby Lemons' camera was rolling as he captured a federal investigation of the JFK assassination in Dallas - months after it happened One of a kind: The Lemons' footage is the only known color video of the reconstruction Bobby and Jan Lemons were no different, but they had something to add to the conversation - the only full-color video of a subsequent investigation into Kennedy's death. KTAB News reported that the video had been sitting in a kitchen cupboard in the Lemons' Big Country, Texas, home for decades. They said that they were a young couple when they visited Dallas in 1964 - months after Kennedy's death. As they arrived at the fateful roadway in Dealey Plaza, they found federal officials conducting a reconstruction of the murder. Mr Lemons took out his camera and began filming as they witnessed an agent posing as Kennedy, with markings showing where the president had been shot. It's the only known color video of the investigation. Planning: Officials can be seen staging the re-enactment as a man posing as Kennedy can be seen in the back seat PHOTO http://i.dailymail.c...291_306x423.jpg http://i.dailymail.c...268_306x423.jpg They didn't know what they had: The video sat in Jan and Bobby Lemons' kitchen cupboard for nearly 50 years. They were a young couple when they caught the re- enactment in 1964 PHOTO http://i.dailymail.c...841_634x465.jpg Hindsight: Activity can be seen at the window from which Lee Harvey Oswald shot Kennedy in the re-enactment video PHOTO http://i.dailymail.c...-83_634x421.jpg The real thing: President Kennedy smiles in the sun as he rides from the Dallas airport into the city with his wife and Texas Governor John Connally in a photo taken moments before he was shot Until they showed the video to Mr Merrell, the couple believed that what they had was of little significance. They have since donated the video to the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas, which is located in the book depository from which Lee Harvey Oswald fired the fatal shots on Kennedy. Earlier this week, the city of Dallas announced that it will mark the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination next year with a ceremony featuring the tolling of church bells, a moment of silence and readings by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David McCullough from the president's speeches. 'I think what we want to do is focus on the life and legacy and leadership of President Kennedy,' Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said on Tuesday. Mayor Rawlings added: 'The tone is going to be serious, simple, respectful, and it's going to be about his life.' The commemoration on November 22, 2013, will take place in Dealey Plaza, where Kennedy's motorcade through downtown Dallas was passing as shots rang out. PHOTO http://i.dailymail.c...111_634x501.jpg Fateful Ride: President John F. Kennedy, First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and Texas Governor John Connally ride in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963 The ceremony will begin at 12:25pm with the tolling of church bells across the city, followed by a moment of silence at 12:30pm, the time of the shooting. The Warren Commission that investigated the president's death concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald fired at Kennedy's motorcade from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository and acted alone. Rawlings convened a committee of more than two dozen Dallas civic leaders to decide how to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the assassination. He said the committee decided the commemoration should be a tribute to Kennedy's life. He added that students throughout the city will be learning about Kennedy and talking about ways they can fulfill his charge to think about what they can do for their country. PHOTO http://i.dailymail.c...925_634x417.jpg The Arrival: President Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy shake hands with dignitaries at Love Field airport in Dallas, Texas The ceremony, expected to last about 45 minutes, also will feature a performance by the U.S. Naval Academy Men's Glee Club in honor of Kennedy, who was a U.S. Navy veteran. Religious leaders will offer prayers and a benediction, and there will be a military flyover. 'This is an important day in a lot of people's lives – this is true for people throughout the world,'; Rawlings said. McCullough has written acclaimed biographies of Presidents Harry S. Truman and John Adams. He's won two Pulitzer Prizes as well as many other awards. The memorial will be free and open to the public.
