Ep. #057 - A Refugee's Dream with Officer Leth Oun Standing Post

    • Government

As a child, Uniformed Division Officer Leth Oun experienced some of the worst atrocities known to man: he grew up in Cambodia in the 1970s under the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot’s reign of terror. After years of brutality, he was able to flee Cambodia and made his way to America as a refugee, settling in Maryland. He learned English, graduated from high school and college and eventually joined the Secret Service after the September 11 attacks. As he prepares to retire after two decades with the agency, he sat down and discussed his life’s story, an incredible tale of overcoming adversity and trauma.

As a warning, this episode includes a discussion about death and torture by a brutal regime, both against humans and animals. Sensitive listeners or anyone listening with young children may want to skip this episode.
