On for the podcast in our latest episode are retired Special Missions Lieutenant Colonel Jeff Tiegs, and the founder of the Guardian Group Jeff Keith. LT Tiegs became aware of the crime of child sex trafficking while disrupting terrorist networks overseas. 

 

After a brief stint in Law Enforcement and the Air Force Special Operation’s, Jeff Keith continued to serve but as a Pastor. Jeff, in his travels overseas learned of the problem and returned to the United States intending to scale it down. We discussed the scope of the crime, ways that the hotel industry and communities can deny pimps and traffickers grounds to operate, and much more. Enjoy.

GRP 98-Benito Olson:The Story of a Dog Handler Supporting SEAL Team Six in Combat

GRP 98-On for this week's podcast is retired Master at Arm's Benito Olson. Benny began his career in the Navy working in Bahrain where he developed an interest in dog handling. He eventually became a dog handler and was stationed back in the states. Benny was then recruited as a dog handler into the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU) to support the SEALs as their dog handler. We talked what it's like working with military dogs and then working with Special Operations dogs in the SEAL teams. 

Benny deployed 5 times with the Tier 1 SEALs. He was paired up with SEAL dog "Digo". He shared stories of his first deployment where they conducted direct action raids in Iraq. Two of the DEVGRU assaulters were killed on this rotation. Navy Chief Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Nathan H. Hardy and Navy Chief Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Michael E. Koch. 

Benny shares the story of when he was severely wounded conducting a raid where they got into a brief gunfight killing two enemy fighters. Benny moved in with two assaulters to enter the building. Unbeknownst to them, it was rigged to explode. The blast seriously wounded Benny, Digo, and killed Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician 1st Class Luis A. Souffront. Benny's last trip was to Afghanistan during the Extortion 17 incident in which 30 Americans were killed when their helicopter was shot down. 17 were SEALs with 15 of them from DEVGRU. Many of them close friends. This was Benny's last trip before he was medically retired out of the Navy. He now runs a company called Patriot Dog Training.
