John F. Kennedy was born in Brookline on May 29, 1917 to Joe and Rose Kennedy. He was the second of nine children, and his parents came from two of the country’s wealthiest families. While JFK led a life of privilege as a child and teenager, he was diagnosed with many early health problems. JFK joined the US Navy in 1941 and on a mission to the South Pacific in 1943, a Japanese destroyer struck his craft in the Solomon Islands. JFK was responsible for helping some of his marooned crew to safety and was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for heroism.
