Exciting podcast with Steve Kofron. Steve is one of the 12 Horse Soldiers from Special Forces ODA 595 that fought the Taliban on horseback just 40 days after 9/11.

There is a ton quality content directed towards helping veterans but also a very entertaining pod to listen to tap in to a great podcast and positive message
Great interviews and podcasts
This is one of my buddies. Consider him a brother and has done so much for veterans. Always has an open ear for anyone who has ptsd or depression or simply wants to talk. I’m new to actually listening to podcasts and immediately subscribed to Farva’s. Glad he’s been successful in his work with veterans.
One of the best podcasts I’ve listened too. He shows a genuine care for the veteran community and all communities across the board. Heading different stories are very inspiring. I would recommend this to everyone to listen too.
