    Small though they were, PT boats played a key role in World War II, carrying out an astonishing variety of missions where fast, versatile, and strongly armed vessels were needed. Called "weapons of opportunity", they met the enemy at closer quarters and with greater frequency than any other type of surface craft. Among the most famous PT commanders was John F. Kennedy, whose courageous actions in the Pacific are now well known to the American public.

    This would be the first formal speech to the American people from the mind of the President who is credited with bringing "Camelot" to the nation. In this speech we hear his first presidential endorsement of the Peace Corp., Food For Peace, an international sharing of scientific knowledge, and a cooperative space race. Here he decries the Cold War and Communist encroachment in Cuba. He will tell the American people things will get worse before they get better. A classic speech delivered by a well-loved American President. Narrated by Glenn Hascall.
