Presidents Obama, Clinton Lay Wreath at JFK’s Eternal Flame


ARLINGTON, Va. (WGGB) — Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton took a moment Wednesday to pay tribute to President John F. Kennedy.

The two presidents, along with First Lady Michelle Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, visited Arlington National Cemetery to lay a wreath at the eternal flame which burns at the Kennedy’s grave site.

Following the brief ceremony, the Clintons and Obamas greeted members of the Kennedy family, including Ethel Kennedy, Robert Kennedy’s wife and JFK’s sister-in-law.

President Kennedy was assassinated 50 years ago this week – on November 22, 1963.

ABC40’s Dave Madsen will report live from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston Friday.
