    I would recommend “20 Years in the Secret Service” by Ga. Tech alumnus, Rufus W. Youngblood. Originally published by Simon & Schuster in the 70s, his daughter updated and expanded the memoir, adding over a hundred photos to it. Known for shielding VP Johnson with his body during the Kennedy assassination, Youngblood describes the tragedy in detail. The book offers a personalized history lesson through the unique perspective a Secret Service agent. Also a great Christmas present for that special someone.
