QUANTICO, Va. , Oct. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- On July 26, 2008 , the FBI celebrated its 100th anniversary as an intelligence and national security agency. Growing from a small group of 34 investigators into an organization with more than 30,000 employees, the Bureau has proudly played -- and continues to play -- a unique and prominent role in ensuring the safety and freedom of all Americans. To commemorate this century of service, the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI, Inc. commissioned "The FBI: A Century of Excellence (Legacy and Legends, Part II)," a multimedia presentation that is available for viewing on its Web site at http://www.socxfbi.org/SpecialAgents2.
According to former Society President Richard J. Bernes , "While the FBI is familiar to every American, many are not aware of the Bureau's roots or how it has successfully evolved to contend with the ever-changing threats that face our nation. 'The FBI: A Century of Excellence (Legacy and Legends, Part II)' provides viewers with insight into the leadership, expertise, courage, and integrity that defined the FBI of yesterday and continues to distinguish it today."
"The FBI: Legacy and Legends, Part I" -- honoring the Bureau's ongoing efforts to protect the United States and its citizens at home and abroad -- is also available on the Society's Web site at http://www.socxfbi.org/SpecialAgents.
