Today we have a first on the podcast where Michael didn’t serve but his dad was a Vietnam era veteran.  He opens up some deep topics about what it was like growing up being the son of a Military Dad and how that shaped his world view. 

His story has unfolded and the man he has become despite the story he has is really inspiring how he has shaped his life and the role of being a father to his son.
