I don't understand the first sentence. Agent Bob Foster wore no bar on the short hop to Andrews. He and his ward weren't going anywhere, though John, Jr., being young and very much a Kennedy—already he had his father's eyes and jaw—wasn't reconciled.

I don't know the context of the statement. But I can take a guess : If Agent Foster was really in a hurry to reach Andrews, it could mean that he was in so much of a hurry that he did not bother to put his "tie bar". Being an agent, I think his suit would generally require a tie and a tie-clip (also called a tie-bar) to go along with it. In the context, this might be one of the appropriate deductions, though I might be wrong. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tie_clip
