JFK's cane from World War II finds its way to Smithsonian

For years, Ted Robinson kept the ironwood cane hidden under his bed. On Wednesday, it became a historical artifact when the 91-year-old Robinson donated it to the Smithsonian. The cane belonged to one of Robinson's Navy colleagues, John F. Kennedy, who used it while he was recovering from a back injury he suffered in a military accident in August 1943.
