Ep. 214 - Chris Jones (COP Keating/Battle of Kamdesh)
This week, another detailed look at COP Keating and the October 3rd, 2009 Battle of Kamdesh in Afghanistan with Chris Jones. Chris was an Infantry soldier in Red Platoon, Bravo Troop 3-61 Cav. He was also one of the five guys who volunteered for Clint Romesha's small team to take back the outpost against overwhelming odds. Jones talks about the intense battle that unfolded that day in October 2009, and the strong bonds amongst brothers in arms that kept a relatively small number of them fighting like hell until COP Keating was once again secure.

Ep. 213 - Kyle Knight (COP Keating/Battle of Kamdesh)
This week we return to COP Keating and the Battle of Kamdesh, which took place on October 3rd, 2009 in Afghanistan. Kyle Knight was a Forward Observer in Red Platoon, Bravo Troop 3-61 Cav. Kyle offers an unvarnished perspective of what life was like on Keating before the overwhelming October 3rd attack, the leadership failures that lead to it, and the hours fighting on the ground to win back American control of the combat outpost. He and his unit of just 53 U.S. cavalry scouts ultimately repelled over 300 Taliban fighters while defending COP Keating.

Ep. 212 - Special Guest: Dr. Shauna Springer (Trauma Expert)
Dr. Shauna Springer's father raised his kids like a drill instructor - up at 5 a.m. three times a week to run miles in the dark at a local track. That kind of activity at an early age, along with solo mission service trips to foreign countries starting at the age of 10, may just have been the spark that started Dr. Springer on a path to understanding the psychological trauma veterans face on and off the battlefield. She isn't a veteran, but she has made it her life's mission to understand the psychology of a warrior, to the point where she is one of the most trusted docs within the veteran community. Hear her story and how she continues to help veterans heal in our latest episode of HAZARD GROUND! <a href=http://www.docshaunaspringer.com target=_self>www.docshaunaspringer.com</a> | <a href=https://amzn.to/3dkqpUL target=_self>Warrior: How to Support Those Who Protect Us</a> Support the podcast by supporting our sponsors at <a href=http://www.hazardground.com/sponsors target=_self>www.hazardground.com/sponsors</a>! <a href=https://www.amazon.com/?&_encoding=UTF8&tag=hazardground-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=e29606c6beec65385120ec7be74942c2&camp=1789&creative=9325 target=_self>Shop Amazon</a>!
