JFK graduated from Harvard and went on the join the United States Naval Reserve in 1941. During WWII, he threw himself into danger to save the crew of his torpedo boat after it was rammed by a Japanese destroyer in the Pacific. Despite his own injured back, Kennedy led his crew to several miles to safety. These heroic actions earned Kennedy the Navy and Marine Corps Medal as well as a Purple Heart. He retired a full Lieutenant. After the military, he served several years in Congress in the House and Senate branches. Then in 1960, Kennedy narrowly beat Richard Nixon to become the 35th President of the United States.
As President, Kennedy was notable for his Irish heritage, Roman Catholic Faith, and for being the youngest candidate to be elected to the office. During his Inaugural Address, he spoke the famous words “Ask Not what your country can do for you— ask what you can do for your country.”
