Veterans Honor Fallen President

Two retired military colonels who live in Ketchum, Ed McGowan and Steve Slivinski, honored the 50th anniversary of the death of President John F. Kennedy on Friday, Nov. 22, by flying McGowan’s American flag at half-mast. In addition to fighting in three wars—World War II, Korea and Vietnam—McGowan, left, was in the Army Special Forces for 27 years. Kennedy considered the Special Forces his own creation, his brainchild. Slivinski, right, flew more than 100 bombing missions in the Air Force. He flew out of Fort Bragg, N.C., where the Special Forces were based, and transported Special Forces troops all over the world. They both said Kennedy had been very charismatic and caring, and had a true connection with their generation. Photo by Willy Cook
