Secret Service Agent to provide look into Kennedy assassination

Retired Secret Service Agent Mike Howard will be guest speaker Saturday for a program sponsored by the Friends of the Franklin County Library. He will provide a unique behind the scenes look into the events of the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

The presentation will begin with a brief history of the Secret Service. It covers the four U.S. Presidents that have been assassinated, including Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinley and John Kennedy. He completes his talk by going over the events leading up to and after Kennedy’s assassination. For more information, see the November 7 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
