Customer Reviews

Just Listen

Really a must listen podcast for every American, liberal to conservative, pacifist to militarist, old and young, military and civilian. It is necessary for us as citizens to know and understand what happens to those who go into harm's way on our behalf.

From the people who lived it

Hearing from the people who lived these combat experiences serves to inform junior and senior military leaders, inform historians, and capture the history of small unit actions of the people who lived it while they are still among us. I recommend this podcast to others.

Perspective Enlightening

As a junior leader with no combat experience, this podcast allows listeners to immerse themselves into their stories. These podcasts are invaluable to those who want to know how others have navigated their deployments from Tankers to Logisticians.
