Note: This episode of Danger Close originally ran in October 2021. James Yeager passed away on September 1, 2022. This is a tribute to his life and legacy. As James would always close out his videos: “This is James Yeager for Tactical Response reminding you that your responsibility to be ready for the fight, never ends.”  James Yeager was a police officer, private security contractor, and founder and CEO of the firearm and tactical training company Tactical Response. He had been a firearms trainer since 1994 and founded Tactical Response in 1996 on the principle of “Student First – Instructor Second.”     Yeager’s law enforcement experience included serving as an undercover drug enforcement officer, SWAT team leader, K-9 handler, and as Chief of the Big Sandy Police Department in Tennessee.    In 2004 and 2005, he worked as a private security contractor in Iraq, responsible for the protection of eight Iraqi Election Commissioners. On April 20, 2005, his PSD was caught in an ambush on Route Irish between the Green Zone and Baghdad International Airport. Three members of his team were killed. James discusses this in detail during the conversation.       How much does a million dollars in $100 bills weigh and how did James Yeager know?    What do you do if you lock your keys in an armored vehicle?   Find out on the podcast. James was also the founder of libertv.com and its popular YouTube channel.  His Instagram profile is @mfceoyeager.   Sponsors: Navy Federal Credit Union: Today’s episode is presented by Navy Federal Credit Union.

Not a great interview. He comes off as a bit arrogant, but his book is awesome. Do recommend reading it.

Maybe it's my bias, but I can't trust a word that comes out of these guys' mouths when it comes to foreign affairs. whether it's Mine Baker, this guy, or the previous spy Carr interviewed. They all tow the same line. They all sound the same and it's strange.

Great to hear you guys discuss this topic. It certainly gives me a new perspective on "freedom". I loved Tribe, which gave me a greater understanding of the troubles our veterans now face.
