Honoring President Kennedy, 1963

©Stars and Stripes
Wiesbaden, West Germany, November 25, 1963: The flag hangs at half-staff at Lindsey Air Station in Wiesbaden as massed servicemembers honor slain President John F. Kennedy. Gen. Gabriel Disosway, USAFE commander in chief, read Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara's official announcement of the president's death on what a news report called "a dull and listless morning, which seemed somehow in concert with the occasion."
