The King of Stuff talks with Amber Smith, a former OH-58D Kiowa Warrior helicopter pilot-in-command and air mission commander who flew multiple combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. Amber served as Deputy Assistant to the Secretary of Defense (Outreach), Special Assistant in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and as an advisor on the Department of Veterans Affairs presidential transition team. She is also the best-selling author of Danger Close: My Epic Journey as a Combat Helicopter Pilot in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Jon and Amber discuss Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, the rapid fall of Kabul, and where the US military goes from here.
