More About Clint Hill
Clint Hill will forever be remembered as the courageous Secret Service agent who leapt onto the back of the presidential limousine in the midst of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, on November 22, 1963. He rose through the ranks of the Secret Service, serving five presidents—Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford—eventually retiring as Assistant Director, responsible for all Protective Forces.
After his retirement in 1975, Hill spiraled into a deep depression, suffering from undiagnosed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that stemmed from witnessing—and being unable to prevent—the assassination of JFK. At the age of 77, he met journalist Lisa McCubbin and she convinced him that his memories were important to history.
With insightful, and often humorous anecdotes, as well as his riveting moment-by-moment account of what really happened that day in Dallas, Hill’s incredible story is one of courage, integrity, and resilience.
