The Real Soldiers Behind the Movie

In this episode, retired MSG Chris Spence, a former Army Green Beret, recounts his experiences covertly entering Afghanistan after 9/11. The actions of his Special Forces team inspired the book "Horse Soldiers" and film "12 Strong." Spence's iconic photo of a Horse Soldier is displayed in the Smithsonian Institute and influenced "America's Response Monument" near the 9/11 Memorial. The discussion delves into the challenges faced by these heroes and their efforts to combat terrorism in Afghanistan. Join us to explore the stories of real-life heroes, learn what it was like going in on horseback into Afghanistan, the tough challenges they encountered in battling terrorism, and see how they overcame them.
