The Story - Kennedy's Casket

Recommended Posts

There is a radio program called The Story broadcast by American Public Media. Todays story is about KENNEDY'S CASKET. Here is the description for those interested:

Tomorrow is the 45th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination. At the time, Sorrell Schwartz was a newly minted officer at the Naval Medical Research Center in Bethesda, Md. Soon after he found out about the assassination, Sorrell learned the president's body was being transported to his hospital.

As he tells Dick Gordon, Sorrell next found himself with a lot of responsibility - leading the effort to receive the casket and grieving family members, while also managing a growing crowd of onlookers. Sorrell himself wasn't able to grieve until the next morning, when he saw the newspaper headline and realized he hadn't been dreaming.
