Was stationed at Kagnew 1962-'64. Have a lot of wonderful memories of that place. Was in Ops Co, volunteered at KANU, running a classical music program that nobody remembers. Was camped on the beach in Massawa, when the MP's woke us up (I was down there with Sgt. Caza and his family - I was dating his oldest daughter) when Kennedy got shot. The horrifying thing was that the garbled radio message the MP's in Massawa had gotten said that Johnson was dead too. I clearly remember my 1st thought: Holy S@#T! McCormick's president! The Speaker of the House was John McCormick, who was older than dirt then. Thank God things got cleared up before we left Massawa next morning, as soon as the road opened.
