Irishman John-Paul Jordan is a former Legionnaire with the French Foreign Legion and ex-Special Forces in the British armed forces. He worked as a security contractor in Iraq before joining the British armed forces and served in operations in Afghanistan, culminating in being awarded for his actions in combat.
Following his military service, he worked for international media organisations in war zones. John-Paul also played a significant role in investigating the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya in 2012.
John-Paul’s role was also to clandestinely move journalists in and out of some of the world’s most dangerous hotspots, before moving on to hunt for gold in Afghanistan and train local forces.
Yet, John-Paul’s own personal injuries from war took their toll with the effects of physical (an injury to his upper arm and shoulder) and non-visible injuries leading to his marital breakdown, drink and drug addiction and becoming his own prisoner of war. To finally escape and fight his way out of war into peace.
Buckle up, because this Irishman doesn’t do anything by halves …
