WASHINGTON, DC – Bonus episode! This episode is an experiment of a sorts. I attended a Veteran/ military spouse networking event held called BourBiz. It was held Thursday by The Veteran Success Resource Group at the MGM, National Harbor, Maryland.

I was told about this event by future Borne the Battle guests, Brett D’Allesandro and Alexa Modero the founders of the non profit, Backpacks For Life. They were part of a veteran-owned-business pitch competition that was going to be held at the event. They came in second place and were awarded $15,000. 

I didn’t expect to come away with any interviews on such short notice, but I brought my gear and set up in a booth. Despite the noise of the crowd and the live auction next to me, the audio quality was good enough to bring you two interviews: The first with Rafael Ortiz of Reserve Organization of America and the second with Lt. Col. Olivia Nunn with Solider for Life.
