Joseph P. Kennedy Jr., U.S. Navy lieutenant and pilot (July 25, 1915 - August 12, 1944) was born the eldest of nine children born to Joseph P. Kennedy Sr. (1888-1969) and Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy (1890-1995). He was the only Kennedy son who never sought political office. Joe Sr. had aspirations for Joe Jr. to become President. However, Joe Jr. was killed while participating in a top-secret mission in 1944, and the high expectations of the father then fell upon Joe Jr.'s younger brother John, who was later elected President. His Navy Cross citation reads: "The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Navy Cross (Posthumously) to Lieutenant Joseph Patrick Kennedy, United States Navy, for extraordinary heroism in operations against the enemy while serving as Commander of a Navy Liberator Patrol Plane in Bombing Squadron ONE HUNDRED TEN (VB-110), Special Air Unit ONE (Europe), during a special air mission directed at Mimoyecques, France, on August 12, 1944. Well knowing the extreme dangers involved and totally unconcerned for his own safety, Lieutenant Kennedy unhesitatingly volunteered to conduct an exceptionally hazardous and special operational mission. Intrepid and daring in his tactics and with unwavering confidence in the vital importance of his task, he willingly risked his life in the supreme measure of service, and, by his great personal valor and fortitude in carrying out a perilous undertaking, sustained and enhanced the finest traditions of the United States Naval Service." Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. was killed on August 12, 1944 at the age of 29 during a mid-air explosion over Blythburgh, East Suffolk, England. During his service as a land-based patrol bomber pilot, he was arming a B-17 that had been converted into a robot bomb aimed at an undisclosed German target during World War II when he died. He was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross.
