Take a listen to the podcast. I really hope you get something out of it.

That’s it for this edition.

As a reminder, please be kind and try your best to love your fellow Americans.

So many men and women have sacrificed, fought, and died to keep this country together the past 240-plus years. Please work daily to unite our country again. The vast majority of Americans are decent, loving, great people.

Also, please try to be a better person each and every day. Try to be kinder on social media and how you interact with others with whom you disagree.

Please join me again in our next episode, and please stay safe until then.

And with that, I’m out.

A podcast about defense news and looming hotspots, produced by a prior Marine who's trying to unite the country. Plus, each episode ends with a piece called the, "Never, ever give up segment." It's a piece of American history that will inspire you!
