This 1956 Cadillac Secret Service Limousine, also referred to this car as the Queen Mary II, was directly behind the President during his assassination. This limo has side running boards, hand rails and platforms for Secret Service agents.

The Kennedy assassination spotlighted the bravery of Secret Service agent, Clint Hill. He was riding in the Queen Mary II directly behind the Presidential limousine when the attack began. While the shooting continued, Hill leapt from the running board of the car he was riding on and jumped on to the back of the President's moving car and guided Mrs. Kennedy from the trunk back into the rear seat of the car. He then shielded the President and the First Lady with his body until the car arrived at the hospital.

The period following the Kennedy assassination was the most difficult in the modern history of the agency. Press reports indicated that morale among the agents was "low" for months following the assassination. The agency overhauled its procedures in the wake of the Kennedy killing. Training, which until that time had been confined largely to "on-the-job" efforts, was systematized and regularized.
