As Americans, we are proud of our military and the men and women that make it up, but how much do we really know about what happens in the military? Why is the war in Afghanistan still going on 17 years after 9/11? Are the budget increases proposed by President Trump needed for military readiness? Which MRE tastes the most like human food and which tastes like the inside of a rusted battery? These are simply a a few of the questions we aim to ask. Please join our hosts, Chris 'Henri' Henrikson and Danny Sjursen, as they discuss the state of our military, a deep look at its history, and the principles that have pushed our country into unending war.

Amazing podcast. As a veteran myself, of both OIF and OEF, I deeply appreciate your efforts to educate the public, and support our veterans by speaking the truth about the realities of military service in today’s environment. Thank you for your what you are doing, and I look forward to what is coming.
