Local Man Holds A Piece of JFK History

One local man shares a memento and remembrance of our fallen president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

While Leroy Alford was in the Navy, he took part in the 21 gun salute for President Kennedy in Norfolk, Virginia.

He was so honored to have fired his former Commander-in-Chiefs salute.  He kept the shell casing of the last bullet fired.

Now it's kept as a trophy in his home for people to see, and for him to remember a time so touching in his life.

Alfords been told his shell casing is worth quite a bit, but he says the sentimental value is something he can't part with.
