Great show!

Stationed here at Fort Hood and this podcast has definitely given me resources and services I didn’t know about. Plus the hosts seem to always have a great time. Always a joy to listen.

Nice Podcast

Not in the Army and not associated with “The Great Place” but the hosts are awesome. That Charlie kid is fun to listen to, like I have been listening to him most of my life. It’s nice to hear his voice. Good information and nice commercials for a pod cast.
