About a month or so ago I featured the first of many BPI Security Specialists that have been the anchors of the “on-the-ground” reputation that BPI has maintained over ten years.  Today’s featured specialist is call-sign “Peppermint”.  Let me start with his call-sign which he was ordained early in his career by Mark Fair.  Peppermint was …
