    On November 11, 1963, President Kennedy laid a Veterans Day wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. Exactly two weeks later, Kennedy was buried there himself. At the time, his grandmother was 98 years old and gravely ill. The family thought it would be best not to tell her what had happened. She died the following year not knowing her grandson was assassinated. Source: ABC
