In August 1943, a Japanese destroyer rammed the U.S. PT boat commanded by Naval Lieutenant John F. Kennedy in the water around the Solomon Islands. The small torpedo boat was sliced in two, and thecrew of PT-109 were scattered throughout the wreckage. Despite the chaos and incredible pain from an old back injury, Kennedy acted swiftly. He bravely rescued his men and led them to shore to regroup--Kennedy himself made the grueling three-mile swim against dark and dangerous waters with the life vest of an injured crew member clenched in his teeth.
Kennedy's crew spent the next six days combing nearby islands for food and fresh water before they were finally rescued by another PT boat. For his bravery and wounds sustained during the incident, Lieutenant Kennedy was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal, as well as the Purple Heart. To date, Kennedy remains the first and only President of the United States to have been awarded the prestigious Purple Heart medal.
