Sharing his recollections of that fateful day almost 50 years ago, Jimmy Baggett, assistant chief, Engineering and Construction Division, was a Fort Worth District team member working in the Specifications Section that day. Baggett, considered the elder statesman and the unofficial historian of the District, makes himself available to answer questions and share his 57 years of experiences with the Corps. But still, fifty years removed, and many interviews later about the Kennedy Assassination, there is still a hint of sadness in his voice, a touch of sorrow in his eyes recounting that day.
