Ivie, who was with the Border Patrol for four years, worked in Cochise County, which sits in the pathway of the drug war.
In the border area of Cochise County, there is a large fence near Naco and another fence 25 miles east at Douglas.
He was no Cochise or Mangas Coloradas—the two great Apache war chiefs he fought under.
(c.1815-1874), leader of the Chiricahua Apache people; his name is Athabaskan, perhaps from chizh "firewood" (cf. ko-chizh "his firewood"), or from ch'izhi "the rough one."
