George Robb and JFK

George Robb didn't have any use for John Kennedy. My Grandfather was a Republican and Kennedy was a Democrat. When the new President invited all of the nation's Medal of Honor winners to the White House my Grandfather wasn't going to go. 

That was, of course, before the rest of his family heard about the invitation.  I remember being shocked that he wouldn't go see the President. Just because Kennedy was a Democrat! What did that have to do with anything? 

He did go and we are left with this photograph of the handshaking line. I sure wish that the officer in the background hadn't been sticking his tongue out.
