Capt. Thomas F. Reid (1963)

In addition to the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, next week marks the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination. My father-in-law, Tom Reid, was in charge of JFK’s state funeral at Arlington National Cemetery.

Now 76 years old and coping with Parkinson’s, Tom is interviewed in this video about the events of those tumultuous days. He gives his first-hand account and those of more than 20 other members of The Old Guard who participated in the funeral in his recent book, Their Finest Hour.

We love you, Tom. Thank you for your service to the country!
