In 2003, three months after U.S. forces invaded Iraq, SSG Maddox
received unexpected orders to report to the Baghdad International Airport.
There he was assigned to a Delta Force Special

Special Operations Command (JSOC) responsible for tracking
down the most wanted men in the world, or the infamous Deck of Cards. During his six-month tour with
this Delta Force team, he conducted over 300 interrogations and collected the
intelligence, which directly led to the capture of Saddam Hussein. For his accomplishments,
Eric was awarded the Legion of Merit,
the National Intelligence Medal of Achievement,
the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Director’s
Award and the Bronze Star.
Following the capture of Saddam Hussein, Eric was hired as the
first civilian interrogator for the Defense Intelligence Agency where he
continued to work with the Joint Special Operations Command in tracking down
the U.S. military’s most wanted radical extremists. Since 2003, Eric has conducted
over 2,700 interrogations of prisoners from 25 different countries while
deploying eight times including: two tours to Iraq, three tours to Afghanistan;
and tours to The Philippines, Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as undisclosed
locations in Eastern Europe.
Eric served in the U.S. Army and the Defense Intelligence Agency
