Married to a Kennedy, But Dedicated to God

It was the brother-in-law who ennobled the family. Sargent Shriver married Eunice Kennedy in 1953, seven years after going to work for her father, Joseph P. Kennedy. A decorated veteran and outstanding executive in his own right, Shriver would often be considered an appendage to the famous family - a man dominated by his wife and the junior partner to the brothers Kennedy.

But it was Sarge who lived the life of public service and personal integrity the brothers Kennedy only pretended to. Sarge, who died this week at the age of 95, was the son that the corrupt Kennedy patriarch never deserved to have. Read his story in this article.
