    JFK's Navy record indicated a rich careless kid who had a relationship with a Nazi spy and lost his job in Intelligence. His PT Boat was the only Boat to be run over in WW2 without firing a shot. Indications were that the dumb ass skipper was sleeping in the middle of a heavily traveled Japanese supply route. The Japanese destroyer never saw the little PT Boat and obviously the PT boat never saw the destroyer.While the Navy was getting a Court Martial together old Joe Kennedy immediately sent a family friend and novelist to re-write young John's adventures before the Navy had a chance to get a Court martial court together. The result was the myth of PT109.

    Joe did a hell of a job getting the movie made too.

    Old Joe had ties to Hollywood. It was s cinch to produce the movie and reinforce the legacy with the liberal media cooperation.

    Assuming the OFFICAL RECORD is true?

    Kennedy was not responsible for the boat being sunk, and his actions to save his crew were heroic.

    If you have any real information, let's hear it.

    Another fine example of a conservative smearing the honor of an American soldier because he was liberal.

    Have they no shame? :evil:

    read the report. the pt boat was run over which leads you to believe there was some lax procedures on the part of the skipper.
