Monday, October 8th Mike Lindstrom regaled the club with stories from his 10 week FBI Academy training experience at Quantico.
Mike related to us the three pillars that the FBI has built their program around:
1.) Education. Mike took several graduate level classes across a gambit of police and investigation subject matter.
2.) Fitness. From waking at 4:30 A.M. for a mile long swim, to running the 6 mile FBI "Yellow Brick Road" obstacle course, Mike was able to burn off the calories from the phenomenal food that was served for every meal.
3.) Networking for Executives. The training academy, he explained, is an optimal place to meet, befriend and create long lasting and trusting relationships.
In the last photo you can see that the trainees had to earn their "Yellow Bricks". Mike was modest and played down his achievement, but when asked he admitted that he had earned 4 yellow bricks. Way-to-go!
Though he created a slide show for us, we unfortunately had a last minute venue change and could not accommodate the picture show. I've included 4 photos below that he later shared with me.
Thanks for all you do, Mike.
Glad you're back in Sandy Springs.
Mike was able to add these photos from his training.
