They claim their uncle emphatically told them he was a driver of the 100X on the streets of Dallas. Of course I told them they were mistaken because William Greer was the only driver from Love Field to Parkland Hospital. After their claim I remembered the aerial photograph of the 100X on Commerce Street that details the driver of the 100X opening the door. I have always asked why did Greer open the door on Commerce Street? I then pulled up a photo of an elderly Agent Yost (link below) and a young Greer (your blog) and pasted them on the aerial photo of the 100X on Elm Street - attached and below. Is the aerial photo detailing Yost exiting the car or is the photo detailing Greer opening the door for an unknown reason? Do you have a photos of a younger Yost and your analysis please. Yes I do have my own opinion but will hold until your reply.
