Newly elected congressman (and Marine Corps captain) Seth Moulton attended the annual Veterans Day dinner at his alma mater, Phillips Academy in Andover, where he chatted with fellow Phillips alum, General Barry McCaffrey, the evening’s keynote speaker. McCaffrey is one of the school’s two highest-ranking military grads — the other being Admiral Charles S. Abbott. Phillips Academy has 43 alums who’ve achieved the rank of brigadier general, rear admiral, or higher, including Secretary of War Henry Stimson, presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, and six Medal of Honor recipients. . . . We’re told the main exhibit galleries at the John F. Kennedy
Library and Museum will be closing temporarily for technology and design upgrades. A library rep said the galleries will go dark from Jan. 2 through mid-March 2015.
