John F. Kennedy, commonly known by his initials JFK, was President of the United States during the 1960s.

Kennedy named his brother Robert as his Attorney General, making them one of the most powerful sibling pairs to both serve in the executive branch.

During Kennedy's administration, the Air Force first began using a jet as Air Force One, a Boeing 707 designated as Special Air Mission 2600. (24: The Ultimate Guide)

Kennedy was responsible for a failed military effort at the Bay of Pigs, but managed to weather the resulting political fallout. ("Day 7: 11:00am-12:00pm")

Kennedy's presidency was cut short when he was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald. The national reaction to his death was widespread, with cities unifying over their shock and grief in a way not repeated until the death of David Palmer. ("Day 5: 4:00am-5:00am", "6:00am-7:00am")

Numerous places and institutions were named for President Kennedy, including New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, the U.S. Army's John F. Kennedy School of Special Warfare, Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. (Operation Hell Gate, Findings at CTU, 24: Redemption · D.C.
