On June 12, 1944, Lieutenant John F. Kennedy received the U.S. Navy’s highest honor for gallantry for his heroic actions as a gunboat pilot during World War II. The future president also received a Purple Heart for wounds received during battle. On June 12, 1987, in one of his most famous Cold War speeches, President Ronald Reagan challenged Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall, a symbol of the repressive Communist era in a divided Germany. And on June 12, 1994, “someone” murdered Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in California. That someone has never been convicted in a criminal court.
