Joining us for this show are former Marine NCO Brandon Buscher and former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland.

Brandon Buscher is the Director of Operations at Stop Soldier Suicide, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preventing active duty and veteran suicide. With record numbers of warriors taking their lives, this is an extremely important issue.

Brandon saw extensive combat in the Marines, and has struggled with his own PTSD-related issues since coming back home. Stop Soldier Suicide had such a positive impact on Brandon that he ended up joining the organization. We talk about how to address the problem of warrior suicide, as well as their A Night for Life event taking place on the USS Intrepid in New York City on May 28, 2014. Tickets are available here now.

Mike Ritland, Navy SEAL K9 trainer, author and BUD/S classmate/teammate of Brandon Webb, gives his very passionate and politically incorrect take on U.S. foreign policy. Mike’s position is that we need to stop getting involved in the types of foreign affairs that we’ve gotten ourselves into in recent decades. Let us know if you agree with Mike, and please give us your take on our foreign policy.
