A day doesn’t ever go by, that I don’t stop and thank God, for what you and all of ESI has done for me, in being the stepping stone into this incredible field. I’m the luckiest man alive, I’m cancer free and doing the one thing in life I love doing executive protection.
Again, I am so thankful for my experience with ESI…it has opened many doors for me. In fact, my last contract over in Iraq was with SOC and I saw a message on the ESI facebook site that talked about the value of training at ESI and pointed out that SOC actually put it in their employment announcement.
