Welcome to TFB Podcast Roundup 19: Last week we celebrated those who have served our country with Veterans Day (formerly known as Armistice Day in the United States). In honor of that federal holiday, I’ve brought you a bunch of podcasts featuring those who have served our country including Travis Haley, Eric from IV8888, Jacko Willink, and even one of our very own in-house veterans. In these episodes, their respective hosts talk about tactics, drama within the military and veteran community, and also talk a little bit about their experiences and offer advice to everyone from their experience within the military. Sit back, relax and enjoy the shows folks.
