Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (Ret.) Delta Force Commander Visit

Thursday January 28th,  2016:
A special visit from our good friend Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William G. "Jerry" Boykin.

Retired three-star General Jerry Boykin was the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence (2002-2007) during the President George W. Bush administration. Boykin’s decorated 36-year military career included 13 years as a commando in Delta Force, the United States Army’s elite special operations, counter-terrorism unit. He served two years as a commander of Delta and participated in some of its most high-profile missions, including the Iran hostage crisis in 1980 and the “Black Hawk Down” firefight in Mogadishu, Somalia, in 1993.
