JOE KENNEDY, JR.
"Young Joe, The Forgotten Kennedy"
AS PLAYED BY:
Joseph Patrick "Joe" Kennedy, Jr. (July 25, 1915 – August 12, 1944) was an American bomber pilot during World War II. He was the eldest of nine children born to Joseph Patrick Kennedy, Sr., and Rose Elizabeth (née Fitzgerald) Kennedy.
The elder brother of future U.S. President John F. Kennedy, he had been expected to become the family's political standard-bearer, especially after his father's political exile for apparent defeatism during the advent of World War II. However, he was killed in action, and the task fell to his brother John.
