The Not-So-Secret Service
The normally out-of-the-spotlight Secret Service has been in the news lately. Two agents on President Biden's recent trip to Asia were sent home after one was accused of a drunken off-duty assault in Seoul. And while we're sure that much else of what the Secret Service does is, well, secret, there's plenty of information about this more than 150-year-old federal law enforcement agency that's not so well hidden. From its origins and duties to some of the more salacious details of what it takes to guard world leaders — and some regrettable ways agents have handled that stress — here are some things you might not know about the U.S. Secret Service.
