Luke Mooney
Afternoon Session

Testimony of Luke Mooney

The President's Commission reconvened at 2:15 p.m.
Senator Cooper.
The purpose of today's hearing is to hear the testimony of Officer Baker, whose testimony has been heard; Mrs. Reid. Eugene Boone, Luke Mooney, and M. N. McDonald. Officer Baker and Mrs. Reid were in the vicinity of the Texas School Book Depository Building at the time of the assassination. Deputy Sheriffs Boone and Mooney assisted in the search of the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository Building shortly after the assassination, and Officer McDonald apprehended Lee Harvey Oswald at the Texas Theatre.
Officer Mooney, will you raise your right hand?
You do solemnly swear that the testimony your are about to give will be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God?
Mr. Mooney.
I do, sir.
Senator Cooper.
You are informed now of the nature and purpose of this inquiry.
Mr. Mooney.
Yes, sir.
Senator Cooper.
Do you appear here voluntarily?
Mr. Mooney.
Yes, sir.
Senator Cooper.
Do you have counsel with you?
Mr. Mooney.
No, sir.
Senator Cooper.
Do you desire counsel?
Mr. Mooney.
No, sir.
Mr. Ball.
Mr. Mooney, what is your occupation?
Mr. Mooney.
I am a deputy sheriff, Dallas County, Tex.
Mr. Ball.
How long have you been in that job?
Mr. Mooney.
I have been on the force since February 1, 1958.
Mr. Ball.
Where were you born?
Mr. Mooney.
Hopkins County, south of Brashear.
Mr. Ball.
Did you go to school there?
Mr. Mooney.
I went to school at Middle Grove, Tex.
Mr. Ball.
How far did you go through school?
Mr. Mooney.
I finished high school there.
Mr. Ball.
And then where did you go?
Mr. Mooney.
Well, I finished making a crop--I was a farm boy. My father passed away. I started school at A. & M. and had to withdraw after my father's death, and come back home to my mother, because I was the only child at home. And later on I took a course in aeronautical work, at Luscomb School of Aeronautics, in Dallas, which is about--at that time was about 75 miles from my home, and finished the course, and worked for Luscomb in Garland, Tex., which is a suburb, or 15 miles out of Dallas.
And I worked there approximately a year before I was drafted into the U.S. armed services. I was 19 years old when I was drafted, one of the first.
Mr. Ball.
How long were you in the service?
Mr. Mooney.
From 1942--I went in December, I believe it was, 28th, 1942, and got out February 20. 1946, I believe that is correct.
Mr. Ball.
And what did you do then, after that?
Mr. Mooney.
I returned home on discharge, discharged out of the services, honorable discharge. And I went to Dallas again, come back to Dallas.
After a short couple of weeks vacation, so to speak, I took a business course at Drawns Business College in Dallas.
