I was 3 years old, living at James Connolly Air Force Base in Waco, Texas. My father was at work. My mom was ironing. My little brother was taking a nap and I was watching tv. Black and white tv. I remember someone came on the tv and said the President had been shot. I remember my mom busted out crying. The base alerts (very loud horn-type noises) went off. I remember how loud they were. Mom locked all the doors and was terrified that we were under some kind of attack. My Dad couldn't come home from work. That was the first time I can remember seeing my Mom cry. I am now a 911 Dispatch Supervisor and I never knew about the heroism of this young officer. We are faced with death and the dying on a daily basis. He gave the ultimate sacrifice and, we are grateful for your service, Officer Tippit. God bless you and your family.

Dear J.D. ~

I had no idea I would still be here to mark this sad and solemn 50-year anniversary of the Dallas tragedies. Every detail has run through my head like a tape for all these years; in fact, the current film footage being shown on TV from 1963 affects me profoundly . . . . . almost makes me physically ill. I am immediately propelled back to that dark day 50 years ago that none of us who lived it will ever forget.

I recently found the lovely web site your family has established for you and very much enjoyed reading through it. You have a wonderful, caring family who love you so much, are so proud of you, and miss you terribly. We are all grateful to you for your honorable service and for your selfless act that probably saved many lives on November 22, 1963. Have a glorious Thanksgiving, J.D.; you and your family will remain in our prayers and in our hearts.

With gratitude,

Susan Wright Prater
