A nation that has no borders ceases to be a nation. This is why it’s critical that we find realistic and effective solutions to secure this nation’s borders. And, while there are many polarizing thoughts on the subject, it’s also critical that we have discussions about this pressing issue.
That’s why, when I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days with Jason Owens, Chief Patrol Agent of the Houlton Sector (all of Maine), and his team, I jumped at the chance to learn more about what these men and women do and clear up misconceptions about their role and responsibilities. Today, we talk about those misconceptions, the threats our nation faces, how best to go about securing the resources to protect against those threats, and the brave men and women who do the work of securing our nation’s borders.

As I mentioned earlier, today I have the opportunity to sit down with the Chief Patrol Agent of the Houlton Sector (which is essentially all of Maine). He has over 20 years of experience under his belt and formerly served as Deputy Chief Patrol Agent of the Laredo Sector directing operation along the U.S/Mexico border.
He has completed both the Border Patrol Tactical Unit Selection Course and Border Patrol Search, Trauma, and Rescue Team Selection Course. He’s served in Texas, D.C., Honduras, Columbia, Iraq, and the Dominican Republic among other operations. I cannot imagine a more qualified man to talk about the unique and challenging work of protecting this nation’s borders.

Several months ago, we hosted the first-ever Order of Man event in Maine, appropriately called, the Maine Event.
And, I’m glad to tell you that we have a few more spots for next year’s event (8 to be exact). It’s going to be held on May 29th-31st 2020 and it is going to be an experience unlike any other.
It’s all designed to give you the tools, resources, brotherhood, accountability, and camaraderie that can only be found when men stand shoulder-to-shoulder in a common cause.
It’s a jam-packed event and we’ve got some powerful presenters coming to speak, some unique experiences I can’t completely share with you, and some incredible food. If you want to band with other men who are on the same path with you, claim one of the last spots remaining at www.orderofman.com/maineevent.
