JFK's Texas Trip: Secret Service Agent Rosters & Duties

http://mcadams.posc.mu.edu/palamara/ssrosters.html


JFK's Texas Trip: Secret Service
Agent Rosters & Duties


By Vince Palamara
"In order to establish as complete a record as possible, I have compiled a detailed listing of each and every Secret Service agent connected to the Texas trip---their rosters and their duties. In addition, the infamous drinking incident of 11/21-11/22/63 is explored in full, as is the limousine confiscation/ inspection of 11/22-11/23/63. Finally, I have added comprehensive descriptions of many of President Kennedy's higher-profile pre-Texas trips from 1963, in regard to security
issues and the Secret Service. Much of this data is new, coming from the recent releases furnished by the ARRB (Assassination Records Review Board)."

Drinking Incident Involving The Secret Service:
the drinking incident of 11/21-11/22/63 involving the Secret Service at
the Fort Worth Press Club AND the "Cellar":

Chief James J. Rowley-headed investigation;
SAIC of Dallas office Forrest V. Sorrels-reported to Rowley
along with
Inspector Gerard B. McCann;
Inspector Thomas J. Kelley-also involved in investigation


THE AGENTS WHO FILED REPORTS-
The Supervisors :

a)ATSAIC Arthur L. Godfrey-shift leader; mentions agents Blaine, Giannoules, Burns,
O'Rourke, and Faison in his report: none of Godfrey's men -- including
Godfrey-participated in consuming any alcoholic beverages;
b)ASAIC Roy H. Kellerman- mentions agents Greer, Kinney, Duncan, Hall,
and Grant: only Grant consumed alcohol;
c)ATSAIC Emory P. Roberts-shift leader;mentions agents Ready, Lawton,
McIntyre, Bennett, Hill, Landis, Kinney[2nd mention], and Hickey[Kinney
and Hickey were in Dallas with the automobiles, so they obviously did
not participate in any drinking]: only Roberts and McIntyre did NOT
drink-this was the most irresponsible shift of all;
d)ATSAIC Stewart G. Stout, Jr.-shift leader;mentions agents Sulliman,
Johnsen, Olsson, and Berger: all but Stout and Sulliman consumed
alcoholic beverages, making Stout's shift second to Roberts as the worst offender in the drinking incident;
e)ASAIC of V.P. Detail Rufus W. Youngblood-mentions agents
Johns(ATSAIC),
Kivett, Taylor, and Shannon:NONE of the V.P. Detail participated in the
drinking incident!;
The agents who submitted individual reports:
f)Glenn A. Bennett(PRS agent)-admitted to drinking "two beers" at the
Fort Worth Press Club; went to the "Cellar" afterwards;
g)Andrew E. Berger-same as above;
h)Gerald S. Blaine-although he went to both establishments, Blaine
states that he did NOT consume alcohol;
i)Paul A. Burns-although he went to the "Cellar", Burns states(like
Blaine) that he did NOT consume alcohol;
j)David B. Grant-admitted to drinking a "scotch and soda" at the Fort
Worth Press Club; went to the "Cellar" afterwards;
k)Clinton J. Hill-same as above;
l)Richard E. Johnsen-admitted to drinking "two beers" at the Fort Worth
Press Club;
m)Paul E. Landis,Jr.-admitted to drinking a "scotch and soda" at the
Fort Worth Press Club;went to the "Cellar" afterwards;
n)Donald J. Lawton-admitted to drinking "three beers" at the Fort Worth
Press Club;went to the "Cellar" afterwards;
o)Ernest E. Olsson,Jr.-admitted to drinking "one and a half
mixed drinks" at the Fort Worth Press Club;
p)Gerald W. O'Rourke-although he went to the "Cellar", O'Rourke
states(like Blaine and Burns above) that he did NOT consume alcohol;
q)John "Jack" D. Ready-admitted to drinking "two beers" at the Fort
Worth Press Club;
went to the "Cellar" afterwards...

Conclusion-Rowley did not punish these men in any way whatsoever, even
though (according to the Secret Service manual) drinking while in travel
status is grounds for REMOVAL from the agency( four of the above-mentioned
agents-Bennett, Hill, Landis, and Ready-had critical duties in the Secret Service follow-up
car, directly behind
JFK's limousine)![see Volume 18 of Warren Commission]

-The "Nashville Banner" from 1/23/92 carried a report that a mortal
threat to President Kennedy s life was hushed up by the Secret Service
when JFK visited Nashville, TN, on 5/18/63. The information came from
Rep. Bob Clement, the son of former Governor Frank Clement, JFK's host
during his 1963 visit to the state (both Clements met JFK on this trip
[inc. is a photo from the trip depicting both the elder Clement and his
son]). At Overton High School, a man approached the president with a gun
underneath a sack---he was grabbed by the Secret Service and the
incident itself was kept quiet in order to keep from encouraging similar
scares [think of all the copycat school shootings there are today
because of media hype!]. Bob Clement said: "Back in those days, privacy
was easier to accomplish". The paper interviewed the widow of Paul
Doster, the former SAIC of the Nashville office who died in
1987)---although Paul did not mention the incident to her, she said:
"But, you ve got to remember, he was pretty secretive, even to me." For
his part, Agent Doster told the "Nashville Banner" back on 5/18/63 that
"a complete check of the entire motorcade route" was done (also, other
[police] officers were assigned atop the municipal terminal and other
buildings along the route. These men took their posts at 8 a.m. and
remained at their rooftop stations until the president and his party
passed . In addition, a helicopter was used, similar to its use on
11/21/63 in San Antonio, TX). Agents/ important personnel on this trip
inc. Salinger, Behn, Kellerman, Greer, Roberts, DeFreese, Duncan,
Chandler, Yeager, Nunn, O Leary, Grant, Sulliman, Lawson, Olsson,
Paolella, Burns, and DNC advance man Jerry Bruno;
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DNC ADVANCE MAN IN DALLAS:
Jack Puterbaugh, HSCA 4/14/78-[RIF#1801008010069]
Advanced JFK in Duluth, Minnesota, Sept. 1963, and when he was a
candidate in 1960; "Since the Citizen's Council was footing the bill for the lunch,
they felt that they should determine the wheres and the whos";
11/12/63 w/ Lawson "Puterbaugh met Forrest Sorrels... and drove the alternative
motorcade routes with him"; "On November 22, Puterbaugh rode in the pilot car
[correct] w/ Agent Win Lawson [wrong!] ... THEY PULLED OVER AND LET THE MOTORCADE PASS."

DNC ADVANCE MAN IN HOUSTON (ALSO HAD THE AUSTIN ADVANCE):
Martin E. Underwood-
In an exclusive interview conducted on 10/9/92, the author
obtained thefollowing new information:
- Underwood became "an honorary Secret Service agent" and served
under Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. While with LBJ, he became the
"aide in charge of the Secret Service." The advance man confirmed to this
author that JFK did not restrict agents from riding on the Presidential
limousine. Underwood told Harrison Livingstone: "There were so
many things that fell through in Dallas. Any advance man who had any
sense at all would never have taken him down that route." When
Livingstone commented that the route was changed, Underwood added: "Yeah, I
know. You don't take a guy down a route like that."("High Treason 2",
by HarryLivingstone, page 442)

- FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover had a file on Underwood and,
according to the advance man, Hoover hid the Lee Harvey Oswald file from the
Secret Service;

- Underwood stated that the CIA, the FBI, and the mafia "knew
(JFK) was going to be hit" on 11/22/63 - this information came from his
direct contacts with CIA officer Win Scott, the Mexico City Station
Chief during Oswald's visit to that region! In addition, Underwood
stated that, eighteen hours before Kennedy's murder, "we were getting
all sorts of rumors that the President was going to be assassinated in
Dallas; there were no if's, and's, or but's about it." When Underwood
told JFK about these disturbing reports, the President merely said,
"Marty, you worry about me too much" (indeed, JFK told San Antonio
Congressman Henry Gonzalez on 11/21/63: "The Secret Service told me that they have
taken care of everything. There's nothing to worry about").

The reason why Underwood opened up to me is best expressed by
him: "Everyone who had anything to do with Dallas in any way - Kenny
O'Donnell, the Secret Service -they're practically all dead now.
I just think people should know the truth."

HEAD DNC ADVANCE MAN :
Jerry Bruno, HSCA 12/13/77-[RIF# 180-10117-10264]

"advanced the Bogota, Columbia trip and one to Italy in 1963 as
well as an 11-state conservation trip which the President took before
going to Texas that year";
Bruno didn't like Trade Mart-catwalks... liked Women's Building;
before 11/22/63: "Cliff Carter asked Bruno if there was any truth to the rumor
that JFK WAS GOING TO DUMP LYNDON IN 1964. Bruno told him he didn't know.
The Johnson people were also afraid of the BOBBY BAKER investigation
and the effect it would have on Johnson remaining on the ticket.";
Bruno at White House, 11/5/63 w/ Behn-" O'Donnell, Behn, and
Brunodecided against the Trade Mart... Bruno does not remember talking
to Agent Winston Lawson of the WHD; he says he dealt mainly w/ Jerry
Behn and to this day he can't imagine what caused Behn to reverse
himself on the Trade Mart.";
"Kenny O'Donnell told Bruno that a local Secret Service agent in
Dallas (Sorrels?) [Steuart?] told Jerry Behn that the SS now felt they
could protect the President at the Trade Mart.";
"Bruno told us there was friction between the FBI and the SS.
'They would never rely on each other. The SS would develop their own
local sources', he said... He said there were times when the SS agents
were LAX. Sometimes they'd say that they checked out a situation and
they would not have done so. Asked to comment about drinking after
hours, he said: "They were not 'one beer' drinkers. They could really put
it away', he said. He related an incident on the Naples trip where
an agent, whom he did not identify[ Berger?, whose name was
remembered twice at the Press Club 11/21-11/22/63 and who was mentioned in
Bruno's notes], pulled his gun on a hotel keeper who would not open a bar
late at night to serve them. This trip was in 1963[June or July] prior
to the Texas one."
