    • both correct- 4- Jerry Ford -highest office he ever won was from his congressional district in Michigan….5- Franklin Roosevelt -named Frances Perkins Secretary of Labor in 1933 she served his entire presidency.

  1. I figured only military guys would be buried at Arlington.
    I was right about Kennedy, but I looked up Taft…and he WAS the secretary of war, but…does that really count? He was never a solider.

    Also never would have thought a woman would get elected to the cabinet THAT long ago. I totally thought it’d be the ’60s or ’70s. MAYBE the ’50s…late ’50s, ha ha.

    • He qualified as a former Secretary of War and as Commander in Chief of the army and navy while POTUS… found something odd I wasn’t aware of- the day Taft died which was expected- he had resigned from the court a month earlier to his heath- as Associate Judge on the US Supreme Court Edward Sanford -died on the same day in Washington- unexpectedly following a dental extraction.
