John Guandolo’s Bio
FormerCaptain John Guandolo, USMC is the Executive Director of Operations for ORW. He is a native of Rockville, Maryland who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1989, where he was commissioned an officer in the United States Marine Corps. During his active duty time, John served as a Platoon Commander with 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment in combat operations in Desert Shield, and with 2nd Force Reconnaissance Company. John is a graduate of the U.S. Army’s Ranger School, Jumpmaster School, HALO School, and was a Combat Diver.
After resigning his commission in the Marines, John joined the FBI in 1996 as a Special Agent serving at the Washington, D.C. Field Office. As an FBI agent, John was a case agent, a paramedic, an undercover employee, and the Team Leader of the FBI’s Washington, D.C. SWAT Team. Since 2009, John has worked within the DoD and now privately as a National Security Consultant.
In 2006, John was forced to face issues he struggled with his entire life. Beginning a journey that led him into one of the first ORW programs in the spring of 2009, John found a perspective on the world he never knew. He also found deep healing. “ORW gave me the understanding of my place in this world, the authority I walk in, and the reality that God longs to Father me in the deepest parts of my wounded heart. It’s me walking arm and arm with Him. Without him I can’t. Without me, he won’t. Today, it is an honor and privilege to share that restoration and healing with other men.”
John, good stuff. Claire’s appearance garnered strong reaction – some folks have apparently never listened since – but you’ve got compelling info (if ignored by politicians and mainstream media.) We’ll look to have you on again and if something happens you feel needs attention, feel free to contact us.
