Resilience and perseverance. That's the common thread of this week's podcast as we focus in on Project Hero's Texas Challenge and then the Strongest Competition, Fort Hood's first in-person Morale, Welfare and Recreation event in more than a year. Kelvin made it in to tape the show, even though he just flew back from leave in Maryland, and Brianna took flight, as well, but for something totally different (that involved lots of screaming). Melissa is wired on coffee, and later, Dave welcomes in the newest member of the Fort Hood Public Affairs team, Samantha Farlow, who is excited to join the program (we think).
The crew: - Dave Larsen, Fort Hood Public Affairs - SFC Kelvin Ringold, 13th Expeditionary Sustainment Command - SGT Melissa Lessard, 504th Expeditionary Military Intelligence Brigade - SPC Brianna Doo, 1st Cavalry Division Band
Featuring: - SMA Michael Grinston, Sergeant Major of the Army - Retired SGM Aubrey Gaines, Project Hero rider - Blair Dupre, Sports/Living Editor, Fort Hood Sentinel - Samantha Farlow, Fort Hood Public Affairs - CPT Richard Rainey, 4th Bn., 3rd SFAB, Strongest Competition participant
