Dad and Grandfather worked at K.A.F.B. also.
I believe it, I was in elementary school at the time.

I saw Kennedy when he attended the funeral for Sam Rayburn in Bonham in 1961. Although it was a rainy and dreary day, I too was surprised at how "red headed" he was. It did not come across that way in most of the pictures.

SnappyBob, sorry for the delay. I had to wait until she got off work and got my message. My friend still lives and works right there in San Antonio - lucky her!

Unfortunately, the recipes were not passed on to anyone in the family before her uncle died. She says that most of the family members who worked in the restaurant have passed on by now.

I, like you, would have enjoyed being able to find out how they made that sauce!

I did a search for Shrimp Congenial and only came up with Shrimp Congenlia. It's pretty simular. It might be a good starting place.

Thanks for trying anyway.

I always assumed he landed at San Antonio International, as I personally was standing along Broadway in AH that morning as the motorcade headed south. He was riding in the same open-top presidential limo (along with Jackie, and Gov. & Mrs. Connally) that he was assasinated in the next day in Dallas. I have a photo that somebody snapped in the vicinity of where I was standing.

We know he visited Kelley/Lackland, but did he actually deplane there? If so, that would have to be pretty early in the A.M., as it would have taken some time for the motorcade to head north, and then south down Broadway later that morning.

I always figured he landed at Kelly as it was straight down Military Drive to Brooks. I did read of his landing at Kelly and more extensively some time ago. I just wanted to verify before posting. The report of his landing at International must be an error. The last flight out of Brooks was in 1961, I believe. Not sure it's airstrips would have supported the President's plane either.

Did a little digging. He landed at SAIAP according to the Secret Service roster:

By 1963, SAT's Runway 12-30 had been extended to accommodate 707s & DC-8s.

I always assumed he arrived at SAT. If he didn't, I can't figure out for what purpose his motorcade would have been driving south on Broadway that morning.

Yeah, I was surprised while reading of the Kelly landing that the motorcade went up town somewhere. I've forgotten the route now. I need to find the story i read a couple years back. Funny how all information searches lead to the day of the assassination or at least try to. I think Brooks was closed to landings for sure at that time.

Oops missed this post:

Sounds like he landed at SAT and visited Kelly and Brooks. My Dad must have seen him on the visit rather than actually deplaning at Kelly.

Default I believe,

I still believe JFK landed at International.
The background in the deplaning filmclip I saw definitely was the hilly area
behind the Intnl.
