View the President's Schedule

The usual staff meetings. In one of these I approved 400 Stinger missiles for Saudi Arabia—immediate delivery. This was under my emergency powers. I’ll ask Cong. for more. A briefing on the European trip & a meeting with Geo. Shultz. Then Nancy & I went up on Capitol Hill for the Unknown Soldier ceremony. He will lie in state in the rotunda til the Mon. funeral at Arlington. It’s impossible to describe our thoughts when you stand before that casket. Who was he? A son, a husband & father. The answers known only to God. Afterward we left immediately for Camp David.
