Those who have spent some time traveling are abundantly aware that the world is full of exotic incredible lands with marvels and wonders to behold. The beaches of Waikiki, the lush green hills and mountains of Ireland, and the malaise of culture and language found in the European nations rapture our imaginations and inspire our dreams of adventure.
But we are not tourist seeking a carefully calculated thrill, wind surfing or white water rafting, we are executive protection specialists and our occupation takes us into the heart of the worlds most dangerous places. We are a peculiar breed; we are the ones who rush into the gunfire while others are running the other direction. We are the ones who seek out the tough assignments because if it were not for the hot spots of the world there would be little need for our services.
