Hey everyone, we're back! For today's episode I spoke to Gus Biggio. We originally spoke back in the spring, so things might be a little dated.
Gus recently published a wonderful memoir about his time in the Marines called The Wolves of Helmand. Gus is an insightful guy, who genuinely carries about service and honor.
The organizations he supports are:
- Socks for Heroes, over they last 10 years they've donated over 750,000 pairs of fresh socks to troops serving overseas. Anyone who's ever deployed or gone on a long camping trip can appreciate the sheer joy of a fresh pair of socks.
- Our Spirit of America, they work alongside US troops and diplomats to help out in a civilian capacity. If you're interested in helping Afghan refugees after the Taliban takeover, this is a great place to start.
- And lastly, a repeat recommendation because of what great work they do, Team Rubicon. Right now these rapid response teams of veterans are helping out after the horrific tornadoes in Kentucky.
You can find out more about Gus, his book, and other organizations he works with at WolvesOfHelmand.com.
And last but not least, you can by my memoir Chasing Alexander: A Marine's Journey Across Iraq and Afghanistan.
