(JaiChai) “Codename: Ms. Sagwu”

“Codename: Ms. Sagwu”

Ms. Sagwu is a 100% Native American (Southern Iroquois tribe). Her ancestors are well known, legendary warriors.

But her early life was not so glorious.

Sadly, like most Native Americans, She and her poor family were “out of sight, out of mind” and lived in a dilapidated shack on an obscure U.S. Government Reservation.

Unless one was lucky enough to get a job at another tribe’s casino, unemployment, drug abuse and alcoholism was the norm.

One day, a Navy recruiter visited.

She was one of only two people who bothered to speak with the muscular African American man from the U.S. Navy.

After scoring nearly perfect on the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery), she was stoked to be getting off the reservation and doing something worthwhile with her life.

But her parents weren’t thrilled; vehemently against their daughter going off to fight the “White Man’s War”.

And unfortunately for her, she was only 17 y/o and needed parental consent to enlist.

She acquiesced to her parents’ wishes — temporarily.

Ms. Sagwu told the recruiter to keep her application on file and added, “My 18th birthday is 10 1/2 months away. I’ll enlist on my own after that.”

She had always been athletic in school, but decided to spend those 10 1/2 months doing some intense physical training.

The rest is history.

She graduated bootcamp as the Honor Recruit.

Upon hearing about her success, her parents had a change of heart and even watched her graduate.

During her stint in the Navy, she qualified for the U.S. Navy Women’s Boxing Team, represented the U.S. at the Pan Am games and won the gold medal — in two weight classes!

Upon her honorable discharge, she was recruited by the CIA.

She was on the fast track for promotion until a co-worker sold her out to the Chinese government.

The U.S. Government disavowed her and secretly hired PMCs (Private Military Contractors) from “The Pool” to launch a rescue mission.

Ms. Sagwu was successfully rescued.

Upon her repatriation, she left the CIA to work for billionaire Raymond Kohl as a member of his Personal Security Detail.

The Security Detail — known as “The Pool” to its members and insiders, is an elite group of highly trained and fiercely loyal bodyguards, combat survival instructors and covert operatives — all under the guise of being an ordinary Executive Secretary.

During her downtime, Ms. Sagwu trains for triathlons and has competed in Hawaii’s “Ironman” for eight of the last ten years — always placing in the top 10, Open Division and top 3, Women’s Open Division.*

The running joke among other members of The Pool is that “Ms. Sagwu can go forever on just a bowl of rice.”

*Note: The two years that she was considered the odds on favorite to take the title, she could not enter the “Ironman” because of “work” and then “an urgent family matter” (the death of her father).
