Washington D.C. is home to our Nations President as well as many great buildings and is known for a very popular looking place called the White House. Many people know that the White House and President have a secret service detail that follow them around.

In North Dakota we never really hear of many people going into the secret service. There's one guy in particular that went into the secret service and did something most North Dakotans don't know about. According to Clint Hill's Bio, he was raised in Washburn, ND and is known for his bravery on November 22, 1963. He jumped in the back of the motorcade where the shots were being fired at in an effort to protect the President and Mrs. Kennedy. According to Clint Hill Bio, Clint Hill is credited for saving Mrs. Kennedy's life and he is definitely a hero.

According to the Bio, he also has a street named after himself which was at J.J. Rowley Training Center on December 6, 2012. He was also awarded a permanent plaque at the U.S. Secret Service James J. Rowley Training Center in Maryland. A few of my friends didn't know that the guy that jumped on the Kennedy's in order to shield them was from North Dakota.

Clint Hill served under five presidents and even has a book out called Five Presidents Clint Hill with Lisa McCubbin. It's crazy to think that we have a lot of great heroes from North Dakota. Click here for more details.
