It is a rare thing in life to be surrounded by greatness. Throughout my career, I have been a soldier working with many heroes. It seemed like everywhere you looked there was a man with an unbelievable story that would fill the pages of millions of books. Every Green Beret knows where we come from and the men who paved the way for my generation of Special Forces soldiers. Well, Roger Donlon and John Meyer are two Vietnam era Green Berets who set the standard of what a Green Beret is today. I’ve had a lot of opportunities in my life but this one is very special to me, the chance to swap book with heroes, a man amongst giants.
Quick trip to San Diego for an amazing opportunity to be on Jocko’s Podcast. It’s rare in life to run into someone that you know will have a lasting impression on you but Jocko is that guy. His passion for service members, veterans, and America cannot be denied. Was an honor, I appreciate the opportunity and keep killing it bro.
Putting yourself out there and taking chances is all apart of spreading the word about my book. November 1st, I decided to take a Facebook friend up on her offer and head to Sacramento. With multiple unknowns out there including I only knew of my contacts from Facebook, and having no clue what I was getting myself into, I decided to go. I guess it goes back to the old saying if you don’t try, you will never know. The event was in Auburn California which is a little Gold Rush town in Northern Ca. Needless to say, Auburn California was absolutely amazing to me and I want to thank everyone for their amazing hospitality. The best part of the whole event was being able to raise $1000 for Elk Grove firefighters.
