After 25 years of service, as a Commissioned and Non-Commissioned Officer, James Reese retired as a Lt. Colonel from the U.S. Army. He was part of the renowned “Delta Force.” James Reese was a decorated combat leader and widely known as one of the more elite special operators in the modern military. Two qualities that Reese believes has made him such an effective leader is being a great listener first, and knowing when to take charge as opposed to when to be a loyal follower.James Reese now runs a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned small business called TigerSwan.
Reese came up with the concept of TigerSwan during his last stint in Iraq. TigerSwan is a private security company based in North Carolina. They are adept to handle the security of corporate assets, vacationing families, and high-profile public individuals to name a few. Lieutenant James Reese thoroughly understands how difficult it can be for disabled veterans to get acclimated to civilian life again and that was the driving force behind TigerSwan; to give these veterans purposeful work.
The Chevy event was held at a tactical training facility in North Carolina called The Range Complex. James Reese welcomed Chevy staff members to experience a simulated hostage rescue mission firsthand. They were also able to test their accuracy shooting a practice target about 800 meters away with a long-range rifle. The overall focus of the event was to highlight how the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban are often the most trusted vehicles for some of the U.S.’s most elite special forces units. These particular SUVs have been compared to tanks that are easier and quicker to maneuver. Chevy issued a statement to TigerSwan about how difficult just the simulations of missions and target practices were and can’t imagine the amount of skill and laser focus it takes to operate in live action where operatives may have to lay still in a blazing desert for hours, to only have one shot to hit a moving target that could be a mile away.
