Oswald’s children

There’s a little known fact about one aspect of the John F. Kennedy assassination.

After the capture of Lee Harvey Oswald, the authorities took the Oswald family into protective custody and whisked them out of Dallas. They brought them to Arlington to the Inn of Six Flags.

My husband had been in family practice a little over a year when an Arlington police detective called his partner and asked if he and my husband would go to the Inn of Six Flags to see two sick children. They turned out to be the Oswald children who had bad colds.

Oswald’s mother and wife Marina were there, of course.

We just saw the movie Parkland, and a motel scene is in the movie.

The place looked rather seedy, whereas the Inn of Six Flags was relatively new and pretty fancy in its day.
