It seems unlikely that most of us have a family friend who is a decorated General with decades of experience in the military, who worked his way through the most elite special forces teams, who commanded the Delta Force, who worked in the CIA and who served as Deputy Under Secretary of Defense in the Bush administration.  Luckily, Jim Piper is friends with such a person.  Today Jim welcomes back retired Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin to discuss a wide range of topics.  Everything from issues on our southern border to military preparedness, to the looming threat of China attacking Taiwan and more.  What you won’t hear are carefully crafted sound bites with no real substance or information.  Consider this a casual chat with a friend who tells it to you straight and has the real world knowledge and life experiences to back it up!  You definitely want to make time to listen to this one!

You can follow Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin on Facebook:

Or… find one of his many books on Amazon.


Together, we can invest in great leaders. You can make a difference! 💙
