Up next on Way of the Renaissance Man, smoking cigars with Saddam Hussein, a Veterans Day Special

What’s it like to be responsible for guarding the highest-profile prisoner of the Iraq War? That’s a fascinating question, and the answer is equally fascinating, equally complex, and equally spellbinding.
In this episode, Jim speaks with Kelly Hillyer, the U.S. Army officer in charge of Saddam Hussein’s security detail. And while you might initially think guarding a tyrant would be an austere detail what you’ll discover is that the job was much more nuanced, and much more human than you can imagine.
From smoking cigars together, to reading poetry, the two men developed a relationship that is guaranteed to surprise you. Very few men have the opportunity to do something as unique and with as much historical significance as Kelly Hillyer.
And in this episode, you’ll find out just how this exemplary soldier handled the difficult duty,with class, skill, and with true American virtue.
And now, here’s Jim’s conversation with Kelly Hillyer.
