And important story told by the brave and dedicated men that lived it.
22 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those programs that shouldn't be missed. It should be shown to all children as part of their civics studies. Many of the secret service agents who were protecting the President, the First Lady, and the First Family are part of this retelling of events on that terrible November day in 1963. I was a junior high school student when President Kennedy was shot; and this event still deeply affects me. But, even though we all know they're always there; I think most of us have forgotten that there was a group of men who were obligated to be at the center of events on this historic day. And their recollections from that day was eye opening and interesting. I learned some small, but interesting details from these dedicated but wounded men. It was fascinating hearing the details of the days leading up to Dallas; and then hearing their stories from that day and the days that followed in their own words. It was very touching to see these otherwise strong men who are still deeply affected by their experiences on that day in November. This is a well done production; that will easily hold your interest. And will almost certainly tell you some things you didn't know about this story.
