John Kline - Interview with John Kline: clip: Duties at White House as Marine Aide; doing advance work for trips; carrying nuclear football not that difficult; personal memories of Presidents he worked with; little contact with Ford, fishing trip in Pennsylvania with the Carters and the physician, all staying in a little cabin; horseback riding with Reagan in California; listening to his stories; telling him jokes which might he might use later; just being with the President during historical events was fascinating; coordinating with his counterpart who was with Reagan when he was shot.
