Thousands of "secret" files surrounding the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy 54 years ago will finally see the light of day Thursday. The National Archives and Records Administration will make the files available on its website.

It has been nearly 55 years since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas.

Now, newly released documents about that tragic day and the investigation that followed are available to the public.

But this isn't the final release of federal documents, as it was planned to be.

President Trump ordered that some documents stay sealed "because of identifiable national security, law enforcement and foreign affairs concerns." So anyone interested in those documents will have to wait another three years.

In the meantime, check out more than 18,000 documents newly released regarding the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 online at the National Archives website, www.archives.gov/research/jfk/release.
