He spent more than a decade protecting American presidents

He spent more than a decade protecting American presidents.

Monday he visited with people in Moline.

Bill Albracht is the author of the book, "Abandoned in Hell: The Fight for Vietnam's Firebase Kate."
The Black Hawk College graduate is a Vietnam veteran and retired Secret Service officer.
He says his experiences helped him understand the true meaning of sacrifice.

"All veterans, all jobs no matter what they do if you're in combat or you're getting the guys the bullets and getting them paid, it doesn't matter," Albracht said. "It's sacrifice, and I want them to be aware of that."

Albracht worked on the protection detail of four presidents while with the Secret Service. He also protected foreign dignitaries on American soil.
