Former Secret Service Agent Recalls the Day JFK Was Shot 50 Years Ago

Clint Hill remembers running toward the back of the limousine where President John F. Kennedy was just shot.

Hill was a Secret Service agent who was in the motorcade surrounding the president and first lady on Nov. 22, 1963.

“I think about it every day,” Hill told a crowd Tuesday night at Bismarck State College, the Bismark Tribune reports. “It never goes away.”

Hill said he took off his suit jacket and covered the president’s body at the hospital so the first lady wouldn’t have to see the gruesome results.

Hill also had the unfortunate job of telling Robert Kennedy that his brother was dead.

“I didn’t want to tell him that his brother was dead,” Hill said.

“It’s as bad as it could get,” Hill remembers telling Robert Kennedy.
