Default 5 horrors of war boxes- JFK

So I decided to buy 2 boxes of these last month, I got them in last week and I wasn't particularly thrilled, especially since a week later I had ordered an additional 3. I got those 3 in today...and I pulled the best card I have ever got- a JFK cut auto. Here's a list of all I pulled-

Autos-
JFK
Martin B. Mckneally
James Van Fleet
Vincent Rieger
John Gorton

Base cards-
Kim Phuc
Mountbatten
Burning oil fields
Iwo Jima
Bataan death march

um...While that is a SICK hit...am I that only one that thinks that doesn't look like any of the other JFK signature I have seen? I could be wrong, I don't know alot about JFK signatures, I just thought it looks like a scribble.

Just curious... what do some of the history/war buffs (or anyone else for that matter) think of the other autos? The Mckneally and Rieger were the first 2 I got, and I couldn't find much on either-

Rieger, I understand was an ace- Vincent A. RIEGER Obituary: View Vincent RIEGER's Obituary by Denver Post

Mckneally- cant find much about his war career, I guess he was a republican member of of the US house of representatives- Martin B. McKneally - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

John Gorton- a former Australian Prime Minister, and a member of the Aussie air force in WW2, suffered facial injuries during his time there-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Gorton

James Van Fleet- The auto itself interests me, dated D-day from Utah beach, normandy, and he was a very highly decorated general in a string of wars, also a florida gators football coach, and lived to be 100- James Van Fleet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
