My interest is the JFK assassination.
 
I was 6 and a half years old on November 22, 1963, but remember exactly where I was, as so many do, even as children: the parking lot of the Ramstein Air Force Base (Germany) movie theater. My parents and I had just stepped out into the evening after a late Friday afternoon showing of "Come Blow Your Horn," and were heading for the car when a woman approached us at a trot in the middle of the aisle, screaming that the President had been shot. It was a little past 7 pm, German time. The next thing I remember was the funeral on Monday, and three questions rattling in my head: 1) where we were going to get a new President from, 2) why there was no rider on that horse (and why were there empty boots backwards in the stirrups), and 3) when were the cartoons coming back?
 
I didn't become interested (at the level of a "student") in the assassination until I read David Lifton's "Best Evidence" in 1981, and have kept abreast of developments in the case since.
 
Cheers,
 
Larry

Interesting you have a website for a searchlight battalion; I hadn't seen one like that before but very well deserved.

Cheers!
