Lively anecdotes retold by an advance man for Presidents Kennedy and Johnson.
Imagine one's first job assignment to be arranging John F. Kennedy's visit to Fort Worth on the morning of November 22, 1963. Lively and fascinating, Out in Front: Preparing the Way for JFK and LBJ reveals Jeb Byrne's experiences as an advance man for JFK and as the deputy director of the LBJ advance unit during the 1964 campaign. Byrne's life experiences illuminate the work done behind the scenes of campaign stops and political appearances. His personal memoir exposes the duties, contemplations, and struggles of the advance man hidden from the public eye.
