For nearly 25 years, United States Secret Service agents played an important role at the home of the 34th president. Their job was to guard Dwight D. Eisenhower, his family, and his farm while he was president from 1953 - 1961. After President Kennedy's assassination in 1963, the Secret Service returned to protect the Eisenhowers during their retirement.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to become familiar with the duties performed by a Secret Service agent by doing the training activities in the ON-LINE JUNIOR SECRET SERVICE AGENT MANUAL. In doing so, you will earn the Junior Secret Service Badge and Certificate.

You are now ready to begin your training:
