How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Retired Secret Service Agent Rex Scouten, Known for His Long Service, Died at 88

Rex Scouten served 10 families as a Secret Service agent and was so popular that then-President Ronald Reagan named his dog “Rex” in honor of the Scouten.

The Washington Post reports that Scouten, who lived in Fairfax, VA., died Wednesday at a local hospital at the age of 88.

Harry S. Truman was president when Scouten first became a Secret Service agent. He continued the job through Bill Clinton’s presidency, the Post reported.

Scouten was promoted in 1969 to chief usher, a post he held until 1986.

The Post wrote that Scouten retired briefly before becoming the White House curator at President Reagan’s request.
