Dennis Ford’s Summary...I can not believe a deputy of this caliber broke down with just eye contact...My diagnosis is a case of military induced PTSD...Listen to the recording on my site.

I have spent most of my professional and military career in Special Operations. A part of my time in the Marine Corps was in the Recon teams, and I have over 13 years as a SWAT team member and firearms instructor for SWAT.

In my career in law enforcement I received the highest academy award known as the ‘Best All-Around Academy Student’ award. I have also received two (2) ‘Deputy of the Year’ awards.

In the Marine Corps I received my Airborne Wings; US Navy Scuba award; 2 x High Expert Rifle award (actually 3 times); Pistol Marksman award; crossed - trained in mortars and machine guns. I have received my Marine Corps Good Conduct Medal and my Overseas Deployment Ribbon. I also received a Meritorious Mast and Letter of Appreciation.

My current goal is to become involved in a Private Military Contractor company that can use my training and life experience. My desire is to use my training and experience on the War on Terrorism.
