Memories For This Unit

Chain of Command
As a White House naval aide from 1961 to 1963, Adm. Shepard was responsible for “the manning, the care — everything — about Camp David and the yachts,” he told The Washington Post in 2000. He also advised Kennedy during the Bay of Pigs crisis in 1961. He published a book, “John F. Kennedy: Man of the Sea,” in 1965, with a foreword by the late president’s brother, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.)
