JFK at 100: Remembering John F. Kennedy on his 100th birthday

This Memorial Day marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of John F. Kennedy. The 35th president of the United States, whose life was tragically cut short at age 46, was born on May 29, 1917, in Brookline, Mass.

The youngest person elected to the nation’s highest office was assassinated in 1963 — just two years into his presidency.

Here is a look back at moments in the life of JFK.
