(Testimony of Forrest V. Sorrels)

Mr. Sorrels.
or anybody else that would have tried to have gotten them out of there would have really had a tough time and they probably would have really blasted them in the press.
Mr. Stern.
Mr. Sorrels, that covers the ground that I wanted to ask you about.
Is there anything you would like to add to anything you said this morning with respect to the advance preparations, the actual events in front of Book Depository, your return there, anything that elapsed while you were at the police headquarters from Friday afternoon through Sunday morning or with respect to anything you told Mr. Hubert about yesterday?
Just take a moment and think about it.
And if there is anything you would like to amplify or add to what you have said that you think the Commission should know, please tell me.
Mr. Sorrels.
I cannot recall anything right now, Mr. Stern.
Mr. Stern.
I would like you to identify this one page memorandum entitled "Statement of Forrest V. Sorrels, Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Secret Service, Dallas, Tex. November 28, 1963."
I have marked this "Exhibit 5," deposition of F. V. Sorrels, May 7, 1964.
Mr. Sorrels.
Yes, sir; that is a copy of a statement that I wrote up.
Mr. Stern.
Would you initial that for me, please?
Mr. Sorrels.
Mr. Stern.
Would you review the statement and see if there is anything you would like to add to it?
I think you might just tell us what it covers.
Mr. Sorrels.
This is a statement which was written up by me on November 28, 1963, relating the fact that the presidential motorcade----
Mr. Stern.
The statement will be in the record, Mr. Sorrels. I meant just tell us the subject matter of it.
Mr. Sorrels.
Relating to the events that I observed when the presidential motorcade went from Love Field until the time that I left the Parkland Hospital to go to the Texas School Book Depository.
Mr. Stern.
Is there anything you want to add to that statement that you have not already told us--because we have gone into this in much greater detail now.
Mr. Sorrels.
No, not that I can recall, because as you say we went into it in more detail.
Mr. Stern.
Thank you very much, Mr. Sorrels. We appreciate very much your coming to Washington to help us.
Mr. Sorrels.
I want to express my appreciation to you and to the Commission for permitting me to not come on the week of the 19th, due to 'the fact that my little daughter had to go to the hospital. I certainly appreciate your consideration in letting me come at a later date.
Mr. Stern.
We were very happy we could arrange that, and we are glad to know she is well.
Mr. Sorrels.
Thank you, sir.
