President Johnson Listens to Recording from Capt. Charles S. Robb

In this photograph, taken by Jack E. Kightlinger on July 31, 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson sits in the Cabinet Room listening to a recording sent by his son-in-law Capt. Charles S. Robb, who was deployed on active duty to Vietnam. The president is pictured hunched forward and facing downward, his forehead resting against his hand. On the far side of the room stands a bust depicting Johnson's predecessor, President John F. Kennedy.
