On November 21, 1963, JFK & Mrs. Kennedy departed Andrews AFB for Texas.

The 1st stop was San Antonio where JFK gave the dedication speech of the Aerospace Medical Health Center at Brooks AFB.

The next stop was Houston where JFK gave a speech to honor Texas Congressman Albert Thomas.

JFK said:

“Next month, when the United States of America fires the largest booster in the history of the world for the first time, (it will give) us the lead. Our leadership in space could not have been achieved without Congressman Albert Thomas.”
