Excerpted from BIG GOVERNMENT: Today would have been Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s 42nd birthday. He was born to Josephine and Kent Terry in Lincoln Park, MI and grew up in Flat Rock, MI along with his siblings Michelle, Kent Jr., and Kelly.
Growing up Brian was always interested in law enforcement. He joined the United States Marine Corp right out of high school. Afterwards he would earn his degree in Criminal Justice and became a police officer for the Ecorse Police Department. He would later transfer to the Lincoln Park Police.
This wasn’t enough for Brian. He wanted to fulfill his goal of becoming a federal agent. In 2007 Brian was accepted into the Border Patrol Academy in El Paso and would graduate president of his class. But Brian wanted to always reach the top. He decided to become a BORTAC (Border Patrol Tactical Unit) agent. These agents are the cream of the crop, the absolute best.
