Beyond the Uniform: Ryan Mcleod: Upholding Justice, the Naked Truth

The National Park Service turns 100 in August.

In the lead up, we’re honoring the region’s National Historic Parks by bringing you audio postcards from some of the men and women who wear the uniform.

Today, meet Ryan Mcleod, Law Enforcement Specialist and Park Ranger at Independence National Historic Park.

He says his job is very similar to that of a police chief, but he patrols a much smaller area confined to the National Park. While he takes his job very seriously, sometimes the day presents some lighter moments.
