Parr, who died October 9, 2015 at the age of 85, spent much of his life as a silent eyewitness to history, with a gun at his fingertips. What motivates a man who is ready at a moment’s notice to step into the path of a bullet?

In IN THE SECRET SERVICE, you’ll also follow Parr’s inner journey. That journey led him from his difficult childhood and blue-collar roots as an electric power lineman, to his entry into the Secret Service (where he was the oldest rookie in his class), and ultimately to the White House, where he became Special Agent in Charge of the Presidential Protective Division. Parr’s unique life story continued into retirement, when he became a minister serving the homeless in Washington, DC, AIDS patients in hospice care, and orphans in war-torn El Salvador. It is the remarkable story of a remarkable man.
