For the first time on the show, we welcome on a former Special Agent of the U.S. Department of State’s Diplomatic Security Service, Cody Perron. He is also a former Marine as well as an author of the book “Agent Unknown” detailing his time as a DSS agent. Cody shares what exactly a DSS Agent is and the duties that come with the job, some of the toughest spots he’s been assigned to detail, including an excellent story about his time spent in Erbil, Iraq. He shares what kind of counter intelligence is done on the job, some of the more surreal locations he’s been able to see, and the positive experiences he’s been fortunate enough to experience in his time as an agent. Cody shares whether on not his Cajun roots were able to help with any language barriers he faced, as well as a great piece of advice for anyone looking to become a DSS agent. You can follow Cody on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram. Let him know what you think of his book, where you can purchase here.
Jack and Dennis open the show with Jack’s recount of his speech in San Diego and why it was such an honor to speak with chapter 48 of the Special Forces Association. While in San Diego, Jack took his daughter to Sea World where they encountered a former sailor, while his daughter provides us the highlights from the trip. The guys also discuss bearded culture and an unfortunate helicopter accident taking place mere blocks from the studio. Be sure to leave us a review on Apple Podcast, let us know what you think of the show and purchase Jack’s book “Murphy’s Law” where you can find wherever books are sold.
