123: News From Home

Posted by Michael J. Penney on

On this episode of Cigars and Sea Stories, Bennett and Mike sit-down to talk current events with a twist. There is something unique about being downrange and hearing some news from back home. Bennett recounts his story of being in Egypt during 9/11. Mike remembers the day Bin Laden was killed and the reactions back home. Both were on deployment when the news was broken but each had a very different tone. The story of how the war started. The other told of how we put an end to the hunt for America's most wanted terrorist. Being on deployment and hearing the news of an attack on our home soil carries a different feeling than being on deployment and hearing we just killed the mastermind behind it.-- then there’s missing the super bowl and that just sucks.
