His original Kennedy bust can be seen in the National Portrait Gallery. He served from 1961 until his assassination in 1963, energizing Americans with his youth and optimism. In his inaugural address, he famously urged the American people to service saying, "Ask not what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country."
