This is our inaugural Memorial Day podcast. It’s broken into 3 different episodes that will share stories of fallen brothers and sisters in arms in an attempt to honor their lives and help their stories live on. We plan to make this a yearly tradition in remembrance of what Memorial Day is all about.

Episode 1: Tell their story – In this first episode, Kyle offers a brief history of Memorial Day and some of the traditions associated with it. At minute 16 we observe a one-minute moment of silence in honor of the National Moment of Remembrance. Then Zac and Kyle talk about Zac’s time in the Marine Corps, some of the brothers he has lost and what serving our country means to Zac. We conclude with the playing of Taps. Check out Episode 1 here.

Episode 2: Tell their story episode 2 – In this installment Kyle reads a message from his friend and Marine Will Cuellar about Memorial Day and 3 men he would like to honor. Then Johnny and Kyle talk w/ Retired Lt. Col. Dr. Kevin Kirk of The San Antonio Orthopedic Group.
