Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 96 pages
This autobiography tells the story of the life of Clayton M. Spradley, including early factors in his life which enabled him to acquire and sustain a career as a Federal Agent. Coming from humble beginnings he worked aggressively from an early age and developed characteristics which enabled him to qualify for his various law enforcement positions. His dedication helped earn him the rank of Eagle Scout, and assisted in developing into an excellent athlete. After graduating from Florida State University with a major in Criminology, he became a civilian Special Agent with The Office of Naval Intelligence (now NCIS). He writes of his experiences raising a family with four children and of his year tour in Vietnam as a civilian Agent. He then transferred into the United States Secret Service and served on protective assignments with five U.S. Presidents. During his Secret Service career he was directly involved in thwarting an attempted assassination on the life of President Gerald Ford. He was also active in the United States Coast Guard Reserve with an Intelligence Designator and obtained the rank of Lieutenant Commander. After retirement from federal law enforcement, he served as the Emergency Management Coordinator in the South Carolina Governor's Office and was later appointed Chief of the South Carolina Bureau of Protective Services. This book describes his exploits.
