Judd McCoy

A successful career in the military and a second in education hampered Judd’s ability to speak candidly about controversial topics. Vowing never to keep silent again, he finds great joy expressing his thoughts and ideas through fiction writing, public speaking, and other forms of multi media. An ardent defender of the First Amendment, he attempts to explore and communicate concepts in a broad creative manner that heightens the senses of the consumer.     

     The evening provided a familiar gentle breeze that Hugo Saucedo and best friend JD Graham have enjoyed many times prior at the Wild Boar Ranch. They couldn’t have imagined on a day that started out like any other would be the catalyst for a revolution and that the two friends would be its galvanizing symbols that energized a multitude of like-minded people.     

     It began when an idyllic, rural community hugging the Rio Grande erupted into chaos as America lost control of its southern border. Politicians located thousands of miles north placed no value on those who were enduring the erosion of their southern townships. Yet, its citizens felt they hadn’t the means, nor the courage to enact real change.

And then it happened. A family and their friend never expected the tragedy that would cause their lives to change forever. A murder at the hands of “suspected” cartel members forced Hugo and JD to take a stand. They quickly learned the real enemy wasn’t from the south, but corrupt members of federal agencies protecting their empires and reputations. Hugo and JD’s two-person clandestine fight sparked a movement of thousands who were willing to pick up arms and take a stand against tyranny. Like the Founding Fathers who preceded them, they were willing to lose everything to regain the land of the free and the home of the brave.
