Just about anyone over the age of eight at the time JFK was assassinated remembers where they were when they heard the tragic news. 

For a Minneapolis man, the memory remains vivid even at age 87. 

Jack Puterbaugh was an "advance" man for Kennedy riding in the motorcade about six cars ahead of the president's limousine.  He was selected to help with the president's trip to Dallas after doing similar advance work for Kennedy on trips to Minneapolis in 1960 and Duluth in 1963.

He recalls the tragic day.
