Bren and I have a lot of fun on this show but we do have some serious subjects that we do like to cover. We also love it when we get the opportunity to speak to veterans about their experiences and today we have the honor of having Maj. Scott Huesing on the podcast!
Maj. Huesing is a retired United States Marine Corps Infantry Major with 24 years of honorable service, both enlisted and as a commissioned officer. During his career spanning 10 deployments, he operated in over 60 countries worldwide. Throughout his numerous deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Horn of Africa he planned, led, and conducted hundreds of combat missions under some of the most austere and challenging conditions.
Scott is a published author since 2005. His upcoming book, Echo in Ramadi, (February 2018, Regnery) is a ten-month snapshot in time that changed the face of operations on the battlefield; a captivating story of Echo Company, 2d Battalion, 4th Marines during the Second Battle of Ramadi in support of the Multi National Forces (MNF) Surge Strategy in 2006. His true-life account provides keen insights into what may be an unfamiliar world to readers, but very familiar to those, like Scott, who lived it and endured this historic fight. Echo in Ramadi was written to honor the sacrifices and spirit of his Marines and the families they supported – it is his tribute to them and his honor to tell this great story. Readers will feel the pain, emotion, laughter, intensity, and friction that Scott describes in unvarnished detail.
Tune in and hear how his experiences helped him not only write this book, but also start the Save the Brave foundation and help other numerous charities that help veterans face challenges once they leave the service.
