37. Your post made me cry for your uncle, your mother and for you. I do want to point out, though,

 

that JFK might well have escalated our involvement in Vietnam after 1964, much as LBJ did. Historians are sharply divided on what JFK planned after his re-election. Everything I've read says JFK liked to keep his options open on Vietnam and put off making a decision until and unless his hand was forced.
