Steven Elliott — Advocating For The Wounded So That Broken Places Can Be Made Whole

Steven Elliott — Advocating For The Wounded So That Broken Places Can Be Made Whole

<p>This week’s show is pretty remarkable. My guest is <a href="https://elliottfund.org/">Steven Elliott</a>. Steven was one of two men most likely responsible for the death of <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pat_Tillman">Pat Tillman</a>—the NFL player that enlisted as an Army Ranger as a result of the 9/11 attacks in NYC. During this chat, we talk about the story of how he ended up as a Ranger and all that happened while he was deployed. We also chat a bit about veteran care, caring for those actively serving, PTSD, America's current global military footprint and whether or not we are being helpful, and so much more.&nbsp;</p>
<p>Please visit <a href="theelliotfund.com">The Elliot Fund</a> for articles, books, videos, and other resources you can use to become an advocate for those serving in our military. And buy Steven’s forthcoming <a href="https://www.amazon.com/War-Story-Memoir-Steven-Elliott/dp/1496429915/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_1?crid=1064EOBROIL6L&amp;keywords=war+story+a+memoir+steven+elliott&amp;qid=1556590869&amp;s=gateway&amp;sprefix=war+story+%2Caps%2C147&amp;sr=8-1-fkmrnull">War Story: A Memoir</a> book on or before May 21. Or preorder it from your local library.&nbsp;</p>
