Gary Sinise: American Actor, Director, Musician, Philanthropist, and Staunch Military Advocate
What does a true advocate for America’s service members look like? Look no further than Gary Sinise.

Episode 45: Nick Koumalatsos - Excommunicated Warrior
The rivalry between Marine Raiders (MARSOC) and the SEAL teams is fierce and constant. I'm often asked about the difference between the two, and what they are like. In this episode I sit down with Nick Koumalatsos to talk about them, Force Recon, and all things leatherneck.
