[VIDEO] President John F. Kennedy's World War II Era Patrol Boat Raised from Harlem River

From the mud and muck of the Harlem River, a piece of American history has been uncovered. The MTA recently discovered the main hatchway from a World War II-era warship believed to be the remains of PT-59, a patrol boat captained by a young naval officer named John F. Kennedy. "This is the patrol boat that an American president served on for three months in combat in World War II," said William Doyle, Author of PT-109. "Not only that, but John F. Kennedy rescued at least 10 Marines under fire on this boat. It's an astonishing archaeological find."
