“Blake Percival is one of the most important whistleblowers in recent
history,” Attorney Larry Golston says. “We as a country are safer because of
what he did.”
WEST POINT, GA – The former Director of Fieldwork Services for USIS and Wetumpka, Alabama resident Blake Percival, also known as the National Security Threat Whistleblower that significantly changed the manner in which background investigations are now conducted, will release his new tell all book, “Holding On To Integrity And Paying The Price – A Whistleblower’s Story” on March 2.
On March 3, he will be at the Wetumpka Public Library for a book signing, and the public is invited to attend.
The book launch is planned on the 157th Anniversary of Abraham Lincoln signing the False Claims Act/Lincoln Law.
Blake became a Whistleblower in July 2011 when he exposed that USIS, also known as US Investigations Services, was billing the U.S. Government for background investigations that allegedly had not been properly reviewed. Among the 665,000 clearances allegedly not properly reviewed by USIS were NSA Leaker Edward Snowden and Aaron Alexis who shot and killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard.
For 4 1⁄2 years, Blake was not allowed to talk about the case, but once it settled in December 2015 that changed, and he was featured on the front page of The Washington Post as the Whistleblower. Blake is now sharing his experience in his new book, “Holding on to Integrity and Paying the Price – A Whistleblower’s Story,” being released on March 2, 2020. Books can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes and everywhere that books are sold.
Limited edition autographed copies can be purchased online at www.blakepercival.com/store or at any stop on his nationwide book tour.
The Book Tour kicks off in Montgomery, AL with a Private Party on March 2nd and continues to Blake’s hometown of Wetumpka, AL for a Book Signing on March 3rd at 11 a.m. at the Wetumpka Public Library.
The event is free to the public and a light lunch will be served.
Blake Percival was born in Panama City, Florida where he was raised in a traditional Southern home, and now lives in Wetumpka, Alabama. He graduated from High School in Montgomery, Alabama in 1984 and served 6 years in the U.S. Army where he was Honorably discharged at the rank of Sergeant in 1992. He then worked as a Police officer in West Virginia and Alabama.
Blake is a graduate of the West Virginia State Police Academy, The Montgomery Police Academy, The Alabama Judicial College, and he holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Bluefield State College in Bluefield, Illinois.
From 2001-2011, Blake worked for USIS, also known as US Investigations Services, where he rose through the ranks to the position of Director. USIS was a Company contracted by the government to conduct National Security Clearance Background Investigations on prospective and current Federal employees.
Blake is the founder of The Whistleblower Assistance Fund and donates a portion of the books’ proceeds to help future Whistleblowers with financial needs during the legal process which can take years. He also spends his time speaking regularly throughout the United States on leadership, integrity, business ethics, faith, motivation and is considered a leading authority on the vetting process and investigations. While speaking about the book, Blake remarked, “I hope my experience can be used to show that honesty, integrity and good can win, and to never compromise your principles.”
