In this special two-part interview, Kevin Weaver sits down with Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin (US Army, Ret.) for an engaging and thought-provoking conversation. In Part 1, they discuss the disconnect between the civilian and military world, the consequences of a lost sense of history, and the role church should play in today’s society.
LTG Boykin was one of the original members of the US Army’s Delta Force. He was privileged to ultimately command these elite warriors in combat operations, and he later commanded all the Army’s Green Berets as well as the Special Warfare Center and School.
In his thirty-six years in the army, LTG Boykin also served a tour with the CIA. He has participated in clandestine operations around the world and served his last four years in the Army as the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence. Today he is an ordained minister with a passion for spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ and encouraging Christians to become Warriors in God’s Kingdom.
