Clay W. Biles “has a long and varied career in U.S defense, beginning with his career in the Navy in 1994. Using this experience, Biles then moved into Explosives Demolition in Los Angeles, followed by his studies to become a doctor and two years spent as a medical researcher at Stanford University Medical Center. In 2001, after the attacks on 9/11, he returned to the military and served with SEAL Team Three until 2004. After years spent in the UAE, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Mexico on overseas security contracts, Biles joined the Federal Air Marshal Service where he was assigned as his class’ training leader during the air marshal academy, and was given the Distinguished Honor Graduate Award upon graduation.”  Clay W. Biles is the author of The United States Federal Air Marshal Service: A Historical Perspective, 1962 - 2012: "Fifty Years of Service and Unsecured Skies"

According to the book description of The United States Federal Air Marshal Service: A Historical Perspective, 1962 - 2012: "Fifty Years of Service," “This book is a passport into the world of the United States Federal Air Marshal. A fast paced world of danger and sacrifice, that over fifty years has stood the test of time, securing the skies and nearly one million people that travel on U.S. flagged air-carriers daily. These brave men and women have a story to tell: This is their story.”

According to the book description of Unsecure Skies, “The author gives us an unfiltered account of his personal experience as a Federal Air Marshal. The reader will see how a bureaucracy chartered to protect the flying public frustrates the best recruits by discouraging efforts to excel in physical training and marksmanship. Rigid bureaucratic dress codes and less than secure behavior by some managers risk identifying Air Marshals to terrorists. And even worse, some local supervisors abuse the benefits of their positions to make personal flights on the public’s dime or engage in office romances with subordinates or steal government property. This book shows us the process by which recruits are taught to stifle dissent and learn to just accept and go along. The author eventually finds it impossible to tolerate these abuses. Someone has to do something about it. But can the Federal Air Marshal Service accept criticism from within? Will a whistleblower be successful? Read and find out.”
