    Clint Lorance, falsely imprisoned, pardoned, and now a man on a mission

    Clint Lorance, falsely imprisoned, pardoned, and now a man on a mission

    In this episode, host Steve Balestrieri speaks with Clint Lorance, a former Army officer who was wrongly accused of killing Afghan civilians. The military system, the unit chain of command, and the Army committed a grave injustice and put Clint in prison for killing enemy combatants who were getting ready to attack his soldiers.
    Thanks to being pardoned by President Trump, Clint is now a free man and is beginning law school so that he can help to fight injustice within the system. Clint is also the author of a book called Stolen Honor: Falsely Accused, Imprisoned, and My Long Road to Freedom that will be released on September 22, 2020. You can preorder your copy today!

    John Wayne Walding, first ever amputee to re-enlist as a Green Beret Sniper

    John Wayne Walding, first ever amputee to re-enlist as a Green Beret Sniper

    Born on July 4th and named after the great John Wayne, you could say that our guest John Wayne Walding was destined to be an American hero. He spent 12 years in the US Army and seven in the Special Forces Group serving his country. While serving, John suffered a devastating injury during the Battle of Shok Valley after being shot in the leg. After losing his leg during the battle, John continued to fight on alongside the other soldiers, which ultimately earned him the Silver Star, Bronze Star and a Purple Heart for his bravery.
    Following his recovery, John’s determination and selflessness drove him to do what no one else had done before – enroll in the Special Forces Sniper School to become the first ever amputee to re-enlist as a Green Beret Sniper. As always, John was looking for another way to give back to the country he loves so much.
    To continue on his mission of giving back and serving his country, John is now co-founder of Live to Give, a company built on the premise of giving back and one that donates 50% of its net profits to charities supporting military, first responders and their families. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, John’s company has donated hundreds of cases of water to first responders and schools, partnered with likeminded organizations to help employ those who have lost work, and continued to give back in however possible.

How to hear REAL HEROES & LEGENDS (not millionaire athletes/actors/singers)

Love the podcast as these beyond words brave men describe the missions they served on while giving the humanity of their experiences impact on their soul and what they endured (which a lot of millennials who grew up on call of duty video game cannot comprehend) through being heroic and protecting OUR freedoms

More and more dishonest anti-American propaganda has been popping up with this company run by dishonest people. I saw this through a few interviews early on but this is happening more and more. I remained subscribed cause I do lie to hear opposing view points. However once those view points become dishonest it’s no longer productive. And their dishonesty really goes as far back as their launch of their crate club. I admit they’ve turned that into a decent mystery box subscription but that was after so many complaints. Their most recent description of the protests as “peaceful” in their last email article was the straw that broke the camels back for me. Most reasonable people support the rights of “peaceful” protestors if their truly peaceful. But what we are seeing in Portland is anything but peaceful.
