Clint Hill is a native of Larimore, ND, born in 1932. 17 days after his birth he was dropped off at the North Dakota Children’s Home. Growing up in Washburn, ND, he later attended and graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN. Shortly thereafter he enlisted in the Army and was selected for Army Intelligence School. After graduating, Mr. Hill was made a Special Agent in the Counter Intelligence Corps. In 1958 the Denver Secret Service office had an opening and Mr. Hill was encouraged to apply. To no one’s surprise, he got in with ease and less than a year later he was viewed as an ideal candidate for the White House Detail under President Eisenhower. It would not be an overstatement to suggest the events of his life that followed were quite remarkable.
After reading the searing and compelling book The Kennedy Detail, I was given the opportunity to have an extended interview with the gracious and dignified Mr. Hill on my radio program. When considering Mr. Hill’s place in American history, this was a thrilling moment for me both personally and professionally. And indeed, it was a wonderful listen for our entire audience.
