"Getting Help with Identifications"
"Former Secret Service agent Clint Hill sits down with Kennedy Library metadata catalogers working on our digitization project. During the administration, Mr. Hill was assigned to protect Jacqueline Kennedy, and he became a nationally recognized figure because of his quick action during the events of November 22, 1963. Mr. Hill collaborated with former Secret Service agent Gerald Blaine and writer Lisa McCubbin (in photograph, on Mr. Hill’s left) on the recent book The Kennedy Detail. While here to do research for his own upcoming book with Ms. McCubbin on his experiences guarding Mrs. Kennedy, Mr. Hill took the time to help our archivists and metadata catalogers with some of the unknown people and places in our photographic holdings." For the record, out of the thousands of photographs released (including the many hundreds released the past couple years with Clint Hill's help), I could not find even one misidentification of any agent. Hill was spot-on in this regard.
OFFICIALLY speaking, Floyd Boring, the number two agent of the White House Detail and the official planner of the Texas trip from the Secret Service point-of-view, was at home in Maryland when the assassination happened. However, in newly-released photographs from the JFK Library (and aided in identifications by none other than Clint Hill), agent Boring is depicted by Air Force One as JFK's casket is being transported up the stairway to the plane!
Boring- at home in Maryland- "I was off duty and was washing windows at the house":
"He was not with President Kennedy’s Secret Service detail in Dallas when Kennedy was assassinated.":
and ("I didn't have anything to do with it, and I don't know anything"-?!)
and see ESPECIALLY (Boring also claimed that "he had never spoken with anyone at all in the Secret Service about any aspect of the Kennedy assassination", another statement that is very hard to swallow, especially seeing that Boring founded the Retired Secret Service Agent's Association in 1969...Boring initially claimed that his activities on 11/22/63 "were limited to going directly from his home to Andrews AFB to meet the (new) President 11---and that he escorted President Johnson on his helicopter from Andrews to the White House, after which he went directly home"; the latter part of this statement, that Boring went directly home, is NOT backed up by the documentary record, nor by Boring's own admitted actions. ):
