WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. — President Obama has ordered that flags be lowered at government buildings Friday, Nov. 22 to mark the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's assassination.
In a presidential proclamation released Thursday, Nov. 21, Obama said the anniversary is a day to honor Kennedy's memory and "celebrate his enduring imprint on American history." Obama said Kennedy's vision for the U.S. and the world lives "in the generations he inspired."
Obama visited Kennedy's grave at Arlington National Cemetery earlier this week. On Friday, Obama will meet with representatives from the Peace Corps, which Kennedy established.
