I was at the rededication,


I was at the rededication, aged 9 with my Cub Scout Den, the two things that stand out in my, quite distant memory is that President Kennedy and all of the living ex-presidents, Eisenhower, Truman, and Hoover were in attendance, and Mayor H.Roe Bartle sang The Star Spangled Banner which left a bunch of Cub Scouts rolling on the lawn in laughter.
