Listen Here: Bonus Episode: G-Man Honors: Salute to FBI Heroes
The 8th Annual G-Man Honors: A Salute to FBI Heroes dinner held on November 18, 2021, was a sold out event. But no worries. I invite you to enjoy this audio replay of the amazing evening. The 2021 G-Man Honors event featured a special message from FBI Director Christopher A. Wray and keynote remarks from me, the FBIAA Distinguished Service Honoree. I received this recognition from my peers for my continued support of the FBI family by telling the real stories of the FBI and Special Agents through my podcast, books, and blog.
This year's event was held in special remembrance on the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The G-Man Honors event benefits FBIAA’s two charitable funds – the Memorial College Fund and the Membership Assistance Fund.
Thanks to the support and generosity of sponsors and attendees, this was the most successful dinner to date, raising over $870,000.
Both of these 501(c)(3) organizations offer vital assistance to FBI families in need. Your tax deductible contribution to the Memorial College Fund and the Membership Assistance Fund will make a difference in the lives of Agents and their families.
