Worth the listen
Excellent show with outstanding guests, helpful, and timely information.
Every episode is a Great Episode!
The episode with Navy Veteran Ken Harbaugh spoke the truth about all Veterans’ feeling of service that continues after their time in the military ends. Once service starts, that feeling and passion never ends.

This podcast is amazing. As a case manager for homeless veterans, it has been so nice to hear about others speak of SSVF, HUD VASH, etc. I also enjoy hearing from other veterans about their experiences returning to civilian life.
