John Kriesel was in Fallujah, Iraq on December 2, 2006 when the up-armored Humvee he was in struck an IED. Two of his best friends would die that day, but John would live, albeit without his legs.
Moving on from something like that is remarkable and I was fortunate to get to sit down and talk to John about that and where his life has taken him since. In a year where so much seems to be going so wrong, the perspective John has is refreshing and I think we can all get something from it. Give the interview a listen on our latest episode where we also talk about an insane retired general, pork smuggling, and Marines taking LSD.
