Sean Ambriz joins the podcast. Sean is a Military Police Soldier in the US Army who did two combat tours in Afghanistan. In this podcast, Sean takes us through two major battles with the Taliban in riveting detail. Taking place in one of the most dangerous regions of Afghanistan two years apart, what started as relatively routine missions ended up turning into massive engagements, which saw Sean and his fellow soldiers under constant fire from the enemy and dealing with multiple casualties. Sean tells his story in fascinating, exact detail and along the way spotlighting the heroes he served with and the incredible displays of leadership from his commanding officers. For his actions, Sean received two Bronze Stars and a Purple Heart. Sean would later put these experiences into a book, Ghosts of the Valley.
