Heroes Publish Presents: Tactical Pause with AJ Powell

On this episode I sit down with my good friend AJ Powell. We discuss his first book ‘Tactical Pause’ which just so happens to be published by Heroes Media Groups publishing department. I asked AJ, “When you were active duty, did you have a mentor? A senior Petty Officer or Chief Petty Officer that you looked up to, who guided you, showed you what right looked like, and helped you progress?”

Marco DeLaRosa was stationed at Camp Pendleton in 1993, when he was attempting to stop a robbery outside the base and was shot in the back.

Challenge Extended, Ep: 004 – The South Pole with Cameron Kerr

Retired U.S. Army 1st Lieutenant Cameron Kerr deployed with the 101st Airborne division to Afghanistan. In February 2011, with one month left in his deployment, Kerr stepped on an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), resulting in the loss of his left leg below the knee and earning him a Purple Heart.
