Secret Service Agents: In Their Own Words
Secret Service Chief James J. Rowley:
-“Ten hours after the assassination, Secret Service Chief James Rowley knew that there had been three gunmen, and perhaps four, firing in Dallas that day.” Robert Kennedy, who had already interrogated [Roy] Kellerman, learned that evening from Rowley that the Secret Service believed the President had been the victim of a powerful organization.” [“Farewell America” by James Hepburn (pseud.), 1968, page 301; see also “High Treason” by Livingstone & Groden, 1998 edition, p. 128] A change of heart for Rowley?— “We had no credible information that there was a conspiracy.” 
SAICWD Gerald A. Behn & Dallas SAIC Forrest V. Sorrels:
Forrest Sorrels was on the telephone with Jerry Behn, discussing how the Ruby-Oswald connection could be quickly uncovered. Behn said, “It’s a plot.” Sorrels said, “Of course.” “I looked towards the top of the terrace to my right as the sound of the shots semed to come from that direction.”
According to Orville Nix, a Dealey Plaza eyewitness who filmed the assassination and who was a good friend of SorrelsSorrels told him that the shots came from the grassy knoll.
Also interesting, All but one of Sorrels’ six Dallas agents in 1963 submitted reports of their wherabouts the day of the assassination”. Elmer Moore, the agent who did not submit a report, said he was in San Francisco and did not return to Dallas to join the investrigation until a week later.” However, TWO other agents from the Dallas office, Mike Howard and the late Charles Kunkel (deceased 6/27/92), ALSO did not submit reports. 
SAIC of Protective Research Section (PRS) Robert I. Bouck:
“Mr. Bouck stated that his personal opinion was that although Lee Harvey Oswald was the assassin, he did feel that there was a conspiracy.”
ASAIC WHD Roy H. Kellerman & Driver SA William R. Greer:
“There have got to be more than three shots, gentleman.”
“Well [laughs] we didn’t do any of the shooting.  Greer said to the Warren Commission on 3/9/64: 2 H 78
ASAIC WHD Roy H. Kellerman
I think they’ll be talking about this assassination 100 years from now [regarding the Warren Report] That’s the way I’d keep it, in regards to Greers statement about there had to be more than three shots.” 
SAIC Clint Hill (First Lady Detail), who rode in the follow-up car:
“As I lay over the top of the back seat I noticed a portion of the President’s head on the right rear side was missing and he was bleeding profusely. Part of his brain was gone. I saw a part of his skull with hair on it lying in the seat –I observed a wound about six inches down from the neckline on the back just to the right of the spinal column. I observed another wound on the right rear portion of the skull.”
“The right rear portion of his head was missing. It was lying in the rear seat of the car. His brain was exposed. There was blood and bits of brain all over the entire rear portion of the car; one large gaping wound in the right rear portion of the head.”
The 1970’s— “There were only 3 shots—one gun, 3 shots.” Interviewer: “Are you satisfied that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone?” “Completely.” 
Clint Hill believes that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman according to Program “The Secret Service” but Clint Hill never states this.
SA Paul E. Landis, Jr. (First Lady Detail), rode in follow-up car:
“My reaction at this time was that the shot came from somewhere towards the front” “I still was not certain from which direction the second shot came, but my reaction at this time was that the shot came from somewhere towards the front, right-hand side of the road.” 
AA Martin E. Underwood (Houston and Austin)
*- 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.” 
**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.” 
Google: Abraham Bolden’s, Secret Service’s 1st Black Agent account and ultimate firing because he questioned the SSA and their lax protection of President Kennedy. Following his assassination Bolden was arrested on bogus charges, found guilty because a witness perjured (admitted to lying under oath in his trial) himself, and was silenced for many years until now…. You can also hear Bolden’s account by going to my JFK audio section or Miscellaneous Radio Program Section.
