A member of President Donald Trump’s secret service detail died Tuesday after suffering a stroke in Scotland.
A U.S. Secret Service special agent “suffered a cerebrovascular accident in Scotland, U.K. where he was travelling in support of Presidential Protection,” an official statement revealed Monday, adding that the agent was receiving “much needed critical care.”
The agent fell ill Sunday during the president’s visit to Turnberry golf resort in Ayrshire. The agent, described by the Secret Service as a “dedicated professional of the highest order,” died Tuesday with his family, the BBC reports, citing U.S. officials. He reportedly served the Secret Service for 19 years.

I thought those people had physicals and were made to stay fit as well. Shouldn't the warning signs of this have shown up on their physical?
Then again, I've been run thru an MRI and 2 EEGs for seizure problems, and 'no one's got a clue'. Argh.
Then again, my medical insurance is one step above a Cracker jack prize.

Sad, these are brave men and women.
These folks are under great pressure.
Stress will kill you quick.
