Welcome to the spring 1998 issue of Inside the White House, a newsletter designed to introduce you to some of the interesting people, places, and events in our nation's capital. This issue focuses on the brave men and women of the United States Secret Service.
If you and your family or classmates have ever been to the White House or seen a President of the United States in person or on television, you probably also saw several Secret Service agents. Many young people have written to me about these men and women. Some wonder what it would be like to guard the home of the President. Others ask why some agents wear suits and some wear uniforms. Many even want to grow up to be Secret Service agents. In the following pages, you'll learn about the history of this organization, and you'll also meet people who can answer your questions about the Secret Service, one of the oldest law enforcement organizations in our country.
I hope that you enjoy learning about the United States Secret Service. Mrs. Clinton and I are deeply grateful to these dedicated men and women who risk their lives each day to ensure our safety and the safety of everyone who visits the White House.
