22 Nov 1963

I was eating lunch with Reed and Pearson at the Acey-Duecy Club at the Naval Station on Treasure Island in the middle of San Francisco Bay.  It was a Friday and I was attending an intensive and very long advanced electronics school.  On Friday mornings we would take two exams.  One was for the subject that had been taught during the mornings of the previous four days and the other was on the subject taught in the afternoon.

The TV was mounted on the wall and I happened to be facing it.  The news flash was of the president being shot, which eventually morphed into the shot(s) being fatal.

I do not remember anything else specific about the rest of the day.
