Reclaimed American Podcast is here to teach you the skills your Dad and Grandfathers should have. A.K.A. learning how to get shit done. Wether it’s doing honey-do’s, fixing the car or starting fires. Indoors or out…we’ll help guide you along your journey to become the confident and capable person you are supposed to be. Join your host and Navy Veteran Shad Turner on his quest to teach you the skills and knowledge that has passed down through the generations. You CAN learn how to do things for yourself and you CAN reclaim your independence.
Shad has worked in a wide range of industries: heating and air conditioning, environmental remediation, home remodeling, industrial heating, oil and gas instrumentation, technical training and international travel coordination just to name a few.
Joining the Navy at 19, he went to Great Lakes for boot camp. After boot camp he was sent to Millington, TN to be trained as an Aviation Electronics Tech (AT).
