A few weeks back, I got a call from an old friend, Don Feeney. Don and I go back more than 25 years. (He is a member of the Quarter Century Club). We worked with his company, CTU. CTU and Don were the subject of a book which was later made into a made for TV movie. The book and movie were called “Rescue My Child”.
He is now the COO of Black Sand Security. His wife Judy also works at Black Sand and should be anointed for sainthood. But a quarter century back that’s is what they would say about my wife, and it is kind of what they say about the VDI wives now.
This is an excerpt from the book
“This account of four rescues of American children from foreign lands is more gripping than many fictional thrillers. Delta Force is an Army commando unit familiar with all sorts of clean and dirty fighting tactics; Corporate Training Unlimited (CTU) is a private company composed of veterans of this group, a firm that undertakes missions which may not fall strictly within the limits of other countries’ laws. Livingstone (The War Against Terrorism) details three cases of the children of American mothers and Muslim fathers saved from abduction to Tunisia, Jordan and Bangladesh, and one case of the offspring of American parents spirited to South America; these expeditions, we are shown, took place amid much cloak-and-dagger maneuvering and high adventure. Although CTU claims to have lost money on almost all of these rescues, its members interviewed here never attempt to present themselves as altruistic idealists.”
