“President Lyndon B. Johnson listens to tape sent by Captain Charles Robb from Vietnam, 07/31/1968″
On December 9, 1967, President Johnson’s daughter, Lynda Bird Johnson, married in the East Room of the White House to U.S. Marine Corps Captain Charles S. Robb. Though the photo’s original caption does not mention it, LBJ is actually listening to his son-in-law’s reports. He served two years of combat duty leading a rifle company, for which he was awarded a Bronze Star. Robb later served as the 64th Governor of Virginia (from 1982 to 1986) and a senator (from 1989 to 2001).
