November 11, 2022

Did you know that all branches of the U.S. military are struggling to recruit young people to serve our country? Or that the U.S. Army missed their goal this year by 15,000 soldiers? On today’s edition of Family Talk, Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin continues speaking on the moral decline in America’s armed forces and its dangerous effect. Due to the focus and embrace of political “woke” ideology, this decorated warrior states that there are too many soldiers who are ill-equipped today for the rigors of combat.

Meet the Guest


Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin

Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin serves as the executive vice president at the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. He was one of the original members of the U.S. Army’s Delta Force, and he went on to command these elite warriors in combat operations. Later in his career with the Army, Boykin also led the Green Berets as well as the Special Warfare Center and School. During his 36-year military career, General Boykin was involved in numerous high-profile missions, including the 1980 Iran hostage rescue attempt, the 1992 hunt for Pablo Escobar in Colombia, and the Black Hawk Down incident in Mogadishu, Somalia. He is an ordained minister with a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ, and encourages Christians to become warriors in God’s Kingdom. Boykin served his last four years of public service as the Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence under President George W. Bush from 2002 to 2007. General Boykin and his wife, Ashley, enjoy spending time with their five children and a growing number of grandchildren.
