    Remembering James Yeager

    Remembering James Yeager

    Note: This episode of Danger Close originally ran in October 2021. James Yeager passed away on September 1, 2022. This is a tribute to his life and legacy. As James would always close out his videos: “This is James Yeager for Tactical Response reminding you that your responsibility to be ready for the fight, never ends.” 

    James Yeager was a police officer, private security contractor, and founder and CEO of the firearm and tactical training company Tactical Response. He had been a firearms trainer since 1994 and founded Tactical Response in 1996 on the principle of “Student First – Instructor Second.”  
     
    Yeager’s law enforcement experience included serving as an undercover drug enforcement officer, SWAT team leader, K-9 handler, and as Chief of the Big Sandy Police Department in Tennessee. 
     
    In 2004 and 2005, he worked as a private security contractor in Iraq, responsible for the protection of eight Iraqi Election Commissioners. On April 20, 2005, his PSD was caught in an ambush on Route Irish between the Green Zone and Baghdad International Airport. Three members of his team were killed. James discusses this in detail during the conversation.    
     
    How much does a million dollars in $100 bills weigh and how did James Yeager know? 
     
    What do you do if you lock your keys in an armored vehicle?
     
    Find out on the podcast.

    James was also the founder of libertv.com and its popular YouTube channel. 

    His Instagram profile is @mfceoyeager.

Brilliant books, amazing storystop

Jack, I am In the UK and found you through your books via Cleared Hot.

I am addicted to your writing, it’s absolutely brilliant, and am up to date waiting for the next instalment as an audio book. I have listened several times to each book.

Keep at it, I wing shoot, here and am shoot captain at a fantastic pheasant shoot on the border between Northumberland and County Durham. If you find yourself in my part of the world in the season Oct-end of Jan, come and shoot with me, on me.

I started Archery three years back and had my first hunt in 2020 in SA. My (online😉) mentor is John Dudley and he has inspired me to develop that part of my life.

It’s people with drive like you, him and Andy S that motivate me to drive for the next tough goal.

Thanks

Gavin
