The Secret Squad that Keeps Presidents Alive There are 7,000 agents in the Secret Service. But just twenty-four are chosen for Hawkeye CAT—the president’s most elite protective squadron. Codenamed the “Hunters,” these former Navy SEALs, Army Rangers, and battle-hardened Marines are trained not only to shield the president but to stalk down and neutralize would-be assassins before they strike. For decades, their existence has been so carefully concealed that most Secret Service agents have never heard of them. Until now. Hawkeye CAT is brimming with stories of terrifying near-misses, dirty bombs, poisoning attempts, and laser “death rays,” offering unique glimpses of the perils that haunt America’s First Families. A veteran investigative journalist, Leon Wagener has interviewed hundreds of current and former agents to bring you the exclusive story of how a band of black-suited agents became the elite protective squad that stands between the president and the unthinkable.
