JFK reported to the Office of Naval Intelligence in Washington, D.C., where he was assigned a desk job encoding and deciphering local signals.
Lem Billings recalled that JFK was less than thrilled with the work.
…he was pretty much concerned about his own in that he wasn’t happy at all in what he was doing….He was very frustrated…. I mean it just seemed to him a waste of time. He wasn’t happy at all. At the time there was nothing he could do about it. He was very frustrated and unhappy.
