In this episode I talk with John Neilson, an active duty member of the United States Coast Guard. John grew up with the Coast Guard always nearby, foreshadowing his path in life. From his childhood to a deployment with the Coast Guard, John talks about life lessons, experiences, guys he serves with and lifelong advice from his father.
U.S. Army Veteran & Founder of Combat Flags, Dan Berei, gets deep with active duty service members and veterans to understand what brought them to serve in the United States military. The Combat Flags Podcast moves beyond war stories to chronicle and understand why some choose to serve when most others don’t. With veterans, we take the discussion a step further to uncover the good, the bad and the ugly about the transition from the military back to the civilian sector.
