In this Oct. 15, 2013 photo, Marie Tippit, widow of J.D. Tippit, speaks during an interview about her husband in Dallas. For the month of November, which marks the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination and Tippit’s slaying, police officers can wear a special badge paying tribute to the fallen officer who was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald. It’s a gesture appreciated by his 85-year-old widow, who said the badge bearing her husband’s name, number and date of death not only honors him but also serves as a reminder of all of those who have died in the line of duty and how fast an officer can be killed.
