JOHN F. KENNEDY The first-term Senator tries to assist in the transfer of an enlisted soldier to a base closer to home in Massachusetts in this signed letter Typed Letter Signed: "John Kennedy" as U.S. Senator, one page, 8x10½. Dated January 23, 1953. On Senate stationery, to Mr. Michael A. Gennaco, Brockton, Massachusetts. In full: "This is to acknowledge and thank you for your letter of recent date pertaining to your son's transferral from Arizona to a more local base. I will be happy to assist you, and I am today writing to Lt. Commander A. G. Ellis, Naval Liaison Office, Washington, in the hope that Armand may be moved nearer home. Just as soon as I hear from Commander Ellis, I will let you know." John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), a decorated US Navy veteran of World War II, represented Massachusetts in the U.S. House of Representatives (1947-1953) and Senate (1953-1960). In 1957, he was named to the prestigious Foreign Relations Committee. During his first term as U.S. Senator, Kennedy co-wrote the Pulitzer Prize-winning Profiles in Courage while recovering from back surgery. The book discusses eight times in U.S. history where a U.S. Senator stood up for what he thought was right, no matter what his party or the public had to say. Kennedy went on to become the nation's 35th President. Sadly, his tenure in the Oval Office was cut short by the infamous assassination in Dallas Texas, on November 22, 1963, subject to numerous conspiracy theories in the decades since. Lightly creased. Usual folds, one horizontal through the "J", "h" and "K" of signature. Overall, fine condition. Framed in Gallery of History style: 31¾x21¼.
