In appreciation, Fred recently received the photo above. Said Fred, "theSecret Service told me that I had the largest, heaviest vehicle in the motorcade and I had two responsibilities: (a) to guard the limousineand (b) to ensure that no unauthorized vehicle breached the motorcade. We startedat the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, went to a private terminal near the Hartsfield-JacksonAirport, to the Margaret Mitchell House, back to the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, to thePiedmont Driving Club, back to the private terminal near the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and, finally, back to the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. All the people I met andworked with were delightful and impressive; it was truly an experience of a lifetime!"
