Kennedy abandoned his plans to attend Yale Law School after taking corporate law courses at Stanford when the US entered WWII. Kennedy attempted to enlist in the army in the year 1940. After months of preparation, he was medically denied due to lower back problems.
On 24 September 1941, Kennedy enrolled in the US Naval Reserve with the help of Alan Kirk, then-director of the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI). From there, he was sent to the Office of Naval Intelligence in Washington, D.C.
In January 1942, Kennedy was sent to the Sixth Naval District Headquarters in Charleston, South Carolina. From 27 July to 27 September, he volunteered in the Motor Torpedo Boat Squadrons Training Center in Melville, Rhode Island.
On 10 October, he became a junior lieutenant. The death of a close childhood friend, Marine Corps Second Lieutenant George Houk Mead Jr., who died in combat on Guadalcanal in August and was posthumously given the Navy Cross, kept Kennedy down in early November.
They had stopped in Middletown, Rhode Island, to visit the grave of the renowned naval spy, Commander Hugo W. Koehler, USN. Kennedy paused over Koehler’s white granite cross burial monument and prayed quietly aloud that he would not have to die without religion when the time came. “But they’re not fakes,” he added. “There is no bluffing.”
Even though they met in the mid-1930s on the same Newport debutante party “circuit” and Pell dated Kathleen (“Kick”) Kennedy, Kennedy and Koehler’s stepson, the United States Senator Claiborne Pell, were close friends and political allies two decades later. Kennedy was assigned to Motor Torpedo Squadron FOUR on 2 December.
While Kennedy was an instructor at Melville, he commanded PT-101 from 7 December 1942 until 23 February 1943. He then led three Huckins PT boats—PT-98, 99, and 101—from MTBRON 4 in Melville, Rhode Island, to MTBRON 14. (formed 17 February 1943).
He was hospitalized in Jacksonville after diving into icy water to clean a propeller. Kennedy was subsequently deployed to Panama and then to the Pacific, commanding two additional PT boats.
Kennedy joined Motor Torpedo Squadron TWO in April 1943 and took command of PT-109 on Tulagi Island in the Solomon Islands on 24 April. It was tasked to prevent or repel four Japanese destroyers and floatplanes carrying food, supplies, and 900 Japanese soldiers to the Vila Plantation garrison on Kolombangara Island on 1-2 August.
Commander Thomas G. Warfield of the USS Kennedy received intelligence on the large Japanese naval force arriving on August 1. No torpedoes fired by eight American PTs that night hit the Japanese convoy. Kennedy spotted a Japanese destroyer returning from the base of Kolombangara at 2:00 a.m. on that dark and moonless night. The destroyer Amagiri, however, slashed the PT-109 in half, killing two crewmen.
