Cole Lyle is a former Marine who is now the Executive Director of Mission Roll Call, an advocacy group with the goal of changing policy using the direct voice of veterans. He shares his service as a diesel mechanic and his time in Southern Afghanistan where he learned to be a wrecker operator.

Upon his return, PTSD caused Cole’s life to spiral out of control, leading to a close call with suicide. Surviving this ordeal, Cole leaned into his therapy through a service dog. He shares how transformative this experience was and today, with Mission Roll Call, he talks about the debt ceiling and how this catches veterans in the middle. Rad and Cole discuss the VA and what can be done to improve their service to veterans.
