9781475974362: Harbor Knight: From Harbor Hoodlum to Honored C.I.A. Agent

Growing up in Da' Harbor, a rough steel town with more than its share of notorious criminals passing through, a young boy seemed destined to a life of crime or, at best, a hazardous life in the steel mill. In Harbor Knight: From Harbor 'Hoodlum' to Honored C.I.A. Agent, Ralph Garcia reflects on "pivotal moments" when his life in East Chicago, Indiana might have taken a horrible turn for the worse. Harbor Knight follows Garcia through his tumultuous childhood, to fatherhood at age sixteen. . .and to a bunker in Vietnam, where an unconventional message to the C.I.A. gains him an exciting career in covert defense of the United States. With much humor (and a few other emotions), the author shares incidents from his life of espionage and speaks frankly of how this career has affected his family life. In retirement, Garcia describes how he has been given a second, unexpected opportunity at fatherhood. Keeping one foot in the spy business, he also assists veterans and youth on a variety of fronts and has become involved in politics. ". . .an account of the life of that guy next door, the average American, doing his best overseas and at home to defend U.S. national security." -Michael J. Sulick, former C.I.A. Director of National Clandestine Service
