In these recent news articles, you can read about the documents that will soon be released:

In the documents, it is revealed that the secret service agent who jumped onto the back of a moving car and shoved Jackie Kennedy to the floor of the car was Clint Hill. Jackie had been trying to retrieve a piece of her husband’s skull that had been blown off his head when he was shot.

Today when I saw TV shows about how Jackie was protected by a secret service man, I recalled the time when I interviewed Clint Hill when I was working as a recruiter for Management Recruiters. He came into my office with a resume when he was looking for a job after he had left the secret service. On his resume, his name was C.E. Hill and his job experience did not include his experience as a secret service man.

I can tell you that he was a very handsome man, but not at all conceited. He was a very nice person.

He started telling me about his experience since leaving the secret service two years ago. After a few minutes, I told him to cut the crap — I said I know who you are, and all potential employers will know who you are. I told him that he was world famous as the man who risked his own life to save the life of Jackie Kennedy.

A few weeks later, he called me to tell me that he had taken my advice and that he had told the truth about his experience. He had manged to get a good job working with the state of California.
