Lieutenant General William G. Boykin (retired) was the United States Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence.
He has played a role in almost every recent major American military operation, serving in Grenada, Somalia, and Iraq.
In 1980, he was the Delta Force operations officer on the Iranian hostage rescue attempt. Jerry calls it “the greatest disappointment of his professional career because we didn’t bring home 53 Americans.”
Jerry helped capture Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega, hunted notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar, and has served in Vietnam, Iran, Mogadishu, Iraq, and Afghanistan, plus served a tour with the CIA.
He is currently an author and teaches at Hampden-Sydney College, Virginia.
Jerry graduated from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) with a bachelor’s degree in English
