We have a really interesting show this week! Will Bardenwerper is an Army veteran and author. On this week’s episode, we have a great conversation about his time in uniform, and how he is carving out a career for himself as a writer. So far, he’s doing a pretty good job! His new book, A Prisoner in His Palace
, tells the fascinating story of Saddam Hussein’s final months as a prisoner of the US-led coalition and the interim Iraqi government. The book takes you inside the experience of young, American soldiers assigned to guard the former dictator during his last days. It is an amazing read.
We also discuss how Will got into writing and how other Veterans can do the same. With such a small percentage of Americans actually serving in the military, it is absolutely critical for Veterans to be a part of the conversation.
We had a blast on this one, so we hope you love it!
