April 25, 2017 Chapter Goals Meeting 

Our speaker for April is Walter Coughlin (in the forefront in the photo).

Walt was Special Agent for Kennedy, Johnson and Hubert Humphrey. He was in San Antonio preparing for the Kennedy’s visit the day before the assassination in Dallas.

Walt also was Special Agent in charge of the Democratic and Republican conventions in Miami Beach in 1972. He received an Outstanding Service Award for his work.

I had the privilege of hearing him speak at a Docent Assembly at the George Bush Library and one of the stories he told was of traveling with Kennedy in a South American town and there was to be a meeting at the Embassy…as they approached the building with a circular drive he had an intuition and told the driver to go around back … just then shots rang out from snipers in the trees on the decoy car and all inside were killed.

He was assigned to the White House for eight years. He attended the University of Maryland on a football scholarship. He has two wonderful children and five grandchildren and lovely wife named Ann that he married 52 years ago.
