Black Ops: The Life of a CIA Shadow Warrior

by Ric Prado

Featuring a Zoom appearance by Mr. Prado

Ric Prado was the son of a middle-class Cuban family caught in the midst of the Castro Revolution who fled their war-torn home for the hope of a better life in America. Fifty years later, Ric retired from the Central Intelligence Agency as the CIA equivalent of a two-star general. Black Ops is the story of Ric’s career that spanned two eras, the Cold War and the Age of Terrorism. Operating in the shadows, Ric and his fellow CIA officers fought a little-seen and virtually unknown war to keep USA safe from those who would do us harm.

Ric will join us by Zoom to discuss his book and answer questions. He is the “real deal” and if you want to get a glimpse into the CIA paramilitary community, this is a great opportunity.

The meeting room will open at 7:45; discussion begins at 8 am. Continental breakfast is provided; however, a $10 donation is encouraged to offset increased costs.

We need RSVPs by May 17th, to Robert Epstein at
