The Honour Guard at JFK`s graveside were the 37th Cadet Class of the Irish Army.

Never before in American history have a sovereign army been invited to carry out such an event on US soil.

JFK was greatly impressed by the Irish Cadets on his last official visit to the Republic of Ireland, so much so that Jackie Kennedy requested the Irish Army to be the Honour Guard at her husband´s funeral.

Narrated In Irish, English Subtitles Provided
