Citizen Soldier Protects the Border


>>To me, a patriot is one
who serves his country selflessly through honor and integrity. It’s a suit coat and a — looks like a cross-trainer.>>That should be
the first group. The last one was 758673, they apprehended one,
and two got away.>>Okay, 10-4. The transition,
being an Army Reservist into Border Patrol,
was completely simple. When I was assigned to the academy, my Army Reserve leadership training actually
prompted the instructors to put me into
the section leader position. And it became pretty simple
while I was at the academy to be able to mentor and lead the section to a hundred percent
graduation rate. And we all came home
Border Patrol agents. [INAUDIBLE]?>>Around what time?
>>About an hour ago.>>An hour ago?
>>Yeah, yeah, yeah. So make sure your seat belts
are intact, they’re not frayed, they haven’t been used. These are traditionally made in order
to expand a bit. One night in Iraq when we got blown up,
just you and me. So this is where you’re going
to start up the vehicle. There are many sacrifices
when you’re an Army Reservist, and also as a Border Patrol agent. Certain birthdays, events you tend
to have to give up quite a bit. But in the end,
it’s pretty rewarding. When I deployed to Iraq,
I was 24 years old. And when you are in situations
that your life is being threatened, you come to terms,
and your mind starts to tell you
that you live the good life. Any time that something
fatal may happen, you start to tell yourself that, yeah,
you’re good to go. You know, things will be taken care of. You have to pretty much think
about that also when you’re working
as a Border Patrol agent. We have had individuals that have
sacrificed their life for the job. But you know that you’re
doing good for the country, and you’re trying to uphold the laws
that are implemented in order for us to live the way we live.
