JFK and Jackie’s SSA

July 20, 2012

I just met and sat through a presentation from Clint Hill, the SSA to JFK and Jackie. He’s 79 yrs old and still has it. He’s the one that was the first SSA to Jackie and JFK when he was assassinated 50 yrs ago in November. He’s the one who jumped onto the trunk of the car and then covered both the Prez and his wife.

He, with the coauthor and journalist Lisa McCubbin, of ‘Mrs. Kennedy and Me’ gave a pretty moving presentation.

You can check the book out here:


He said he was with Mrs. Kennedy when she gave birth to John Jr. and Patrick, but wasn’t around to witness the birth of his two sons. It’s an awesome responsibility to be a SSA, but it comes with much sacrifice.
