||4 | Freeman||What do you do with rage when you don’t have any place to point it but inward? When there is no satisfaction in revenge and no way to put things right? Marcus Freeman spent nearly a decade as a combat medic, fighting the insurgencies in both Iraq and Afghanistan with his healing power as much as with his weapons. But some wrongs can’t be righted, they only can be reckoned with. And when you can’t do the reckoning, the price you pay can be tremendous.||4/4/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

Just finished listening to the trailer and immediately hit "Subscribe" ... I am hooked on narrative storytelling podcasts and I think these untold stories could be some of the most important ones out there. We should hear these voices.
Just from the description I subscribed - haven’t even heard the trailer. This is going to be great. It was posted on Patreon by Sword and Scale’s Mike Boudet. I can’t wait to listen!!! #USA #supportourVeterans
