004: Jason Piccolo
In this episode of the Service Record Podcast I talk with Jason Piccolo, a former special agent and supervisor with the Department of Homeland Security. Jason patrolled trafficking corridors as a U.S. Border Patrol agent near the San Diego and Mexico Border. He went on the disrupt major narco-smuggling organizations and landing an assignment to the prestigious White House Security Council's Human Smuggling Cell.
Jason hosts the popular podcast, The Protectors w/Jason Piccolo. The Protectors brings true life stories from Law Enforcement, Military and First Responders; our Nation's "Protectors" AND those that support them. Protectors are those that run toward danger, the ones that put their lives on the line to keep us safe; here and abroad.
He served in the United States Army from Private to Captain, including a tour in Iraq in 2006 to support the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force - Arabian Peninsula as their Anti-Terrorism Officer. Piccolo left military service in 2006 as an Infantry Captain after serving in the active and reserve components since 1993. Piccolo remains active as a mentor to veterans and spouses.
