There have been some guys in the veteran community who have made a really successful transition out of the military and into doing comedy that plays on their service. Mat Best comes to mind of course, and so does this guest, former Marine Infantry Officer, Donny O’Malley.

Donny’s website is DonnyOMalley.com, and you can follow him on all social media platforms @DonnyOMalley.
