Battle Scars

Some firefights and bomb blasts never make the news or the history books, but they’re still incidents that changed the lives of those involved. In each episode, host and former soldier Thom Tran talks to fellow veterans of our recent wars. We hear from a badly burned vet who became a TV star; a medic who says God answered his prayers on the battlefield; and one of the few women soldiers to take an enemy life in action. Thom also shares his memories of fighting in Iraq, where a sniper's bullet came within an inch of killing him. Sometimes raw, often funny, but always arresting.

Customer Reviews

Battle Scars is all heart

Battle Scars is a powerful balance of stories that are both heartwarming and heartbreaking. I’ve had loved ones in the military and it’s not an easy lifestyle. Society often forgets about those who are fighting their country’s battles for them. Thank you for sharing these stories!

So important

I have very few military affiliations. My grandpa served for a few years when he was young but never saw combat, and that is the extent of my military relationship. I became close veterans and people who were dating active military personnel in college and I realized how ignorant I really was about the military. It’s been difficult to ask the people I know their stories because I’m not very close to them and I don’t want to be rude, but hearing stories such as these really puts their sacrifices into perspective. This is just one way I’m trying to educate myself about the military and the people who served. Thank you all for sharing!

Important Perspectives

Few of us will ever wear the service uniforms of our country, but all of us should listen to voices of those who do.
