I know this will show up on the 23rd, but does everyone remember where they were when we heard the news that the president had been shot? I was in Bitburg Germany + it was late in the evening.

Interesting. I was in college at the time and had walked into the cafeteria to get lunch. They were playing a local radio station on the pa when the news came in. Classes were canceled for the rest of the day. My dad and I were walking back to the car after a morning of duck hunting when we ran into another hunter, a photographer for the L.A Times, who asked if we had heard that Oswald had been shot. Stuck in the memory like where I was on 9/11.

If you haven't, you should read Stephen Kings book 11.22.63.
One of my favorites. More about time travel then Kennedy.

On the football field at Las Cruces High School. Everything stopped. We returned to class, and the rest of the day was cancelled.

Really interesting post.

I was not born yet but my dad was in his Junior High Gym class. His teacher told the class what had happened and one of the students made a smart ass comment. My dad said that the teacher about ripped that kids head off.

That book was a bit disturbing.

Jtex, it was a bit creepy but then again it was written by Steven King. I enjoyed it but then I am a Jack Finney time travel fan anyway. Another alternate theory novel (not time travel) concerning the assassination is Stephen Hunter's book "The 3rd Bullet".

Was sitting in 7th grade English Class in Jr. High. Teachers and girls started crying. Can't remember much more. We have a son born on 11/22, so the Kennedy assassination details have long faded from my memory, being replaced by much more pleasant ones.

I was in a one room west central Ks country school, called Manteno, with 15 or so other kids (eight grades). I think I was in seventh grade. The phone rang, which was very rare. Teacher answered it and listened a while, then hung up and told us kids. The teacher, Mrs Hoard, was very upset. Soon parents showed up and took their kids home. I have vivid memories of that day, and the following few days when Oswald was shot.

The whole next few days was bizarre. We were glued to the TV set.

(A couple of days later, I ran into the kitchen around lunch time to tell my mother when Oswald got shot. We just sat there staring, wondering what was going to happen next.)

It was 11 and half years before I was born.

But I remember:

Sadam Hussen capture. I was in Rota Spain at the Navy Exchange in the TV section and saw it on the news.

(9/11) I was on the USS Carl Vinson we had just pulled out of Singapore and were on our way to Australia. We turned around and stationed off the coast of Pakistan.

Challenger Flight STS-51-L I was in 4th or 5th grade in Elementary School in Casper, Wyoming. We had a moment of silence and then went on our way.

Columbia Flight STS-107 I was in Tulare California picking up my daughter to take her to Disneyland.

I don't remember where I was for Reagan's attempted execution.

I was at the US Embassy in Australia when Bin Ladin was KIA by the SEALS.
